Going oversea for a bit like a couple years

Will my rig survive the transport if I put it back in the cases original box. Also will the LCD survive?

well, you might want to ship it overseas instead of letting the flight crew handle it. they throw luggage around like it's nothing. I guess you could carry on if it's small enough but I would still recommend shipping it.

How would shipping it work if I don't have the address yet, have a friend ship it for me later?

yeah have friend/family ship it or
disassemble important parts and put into individual boxes and carry it on plane/put into your luggage.

but honestly, just pad up the rig and send it. might want to take any expansion cards out from case.
h50 isnt that huge so it shouldnt fall like how a huge tower heatsink would.

would there be shocks to the rig that would kill the hd? rather leave it all in.

I shipped the PC on my sig just a few weeks ago via passenger airliner from Vancouver, Canada to Manila, Philippines via Seoul Korea (except the monitor, I was going to bring it in original box but it would not fit). Still working well here, and it returns to Canada in about a week as well It is a small form factor however.

All (most) of the stuff got shipped from China in the first place, didn't hurt it then, did it?

BTW, most small air mail items get sent in the luggage hold of commercial airlines - the same ones that take you on holiday/business trips.

If you are willing to pay extra for added luggage, you could get a dedicated hard-side piece of baggage for your PC components.

Depending upon the size of the monitor (sorry didn't peek at your specs ), you might be able to fit it all.
  • Pack all individual componets in anti-static bags and then bubble wrap
  • Pack all wrapped components in the case with some of your clothing like T-shirts
  • Insure you bag for the cost of the components
