No matter what pruduct I purchase, performance pcs/frozen cpu/sidewindercomputer/jab tech/aquatuning will charge me AT LEAST 30 bucks as shipping fee. If I buy a large item such as 1 or 2 480/560 radiator(s) or some tubing, the fee goes to 60+.

The only canadian stores NCIX/dazmode have much less choices. And they are somewhat overpriced.

In addition, I need to wait at least 5 days if I choose Express or 10+ days if I chooes regular shipping method.

Just want to know which store do you ppl live in canada choose?
I use ncix.com mostly. The US has alot more selection and better prices then Canada also. We just don't have as many people packed together as the USA, not as much business I guess.

only way to get around this would be to have a freind in the us to buy the stuff and then send it over as normal mail.
i live in toronto, even if i want to go to buffalo, ive never found any water cooling gear there.
it just seems to be to much of a niche buisness in canada and toronto for me, to bad bad Dazmode does not have pick up, they carry alot of the stuff im curently in the market for my first build, will still get stuff from them if difference is minor but if they had pick up i probaly be spending my $1000 to $800 with them, im sure im not alone in this.
Dazmode rep u guys should consider this, even if there only 50 people like me in a year see how much more u would make 40k in this example, seems to me its money....
i like to look and grab b4 i buy lol when ever possible.
Ncix might be good but i price matched and never even got an answer.
Canada computers might not have good service but prices are in general cheaper, directcanada im trying now first time, if they deliver the right product and in good conditions they have excelent prices on the few things they cary
And ya it sucks beeing in canda for this stuff, cant find GT Ap15 anywhere but found them in Portugal!

If I can I use memoryexpress for everything and price match newegg or ncix or whoever is cheapest. If MemExp doesn't stock it, then I think long and hard if I wanna deal with ordering from the US...

I just wrote a letter to the members of Parliament asking if they'll waive the $50 tax Canadians have to pay when buying the yearly Computer Hardware Catalogue (which is mandatory for ordering computer hardware).

And when I buy my catalogue this year, I hope it comes in 6-8 weeks this time so I can start ordering some hardware so the Eskimo Service can deliver them to my house within 3-4 months.

Here's wishing things work out well this year

Nah, Europe is just a lot more expensive for gas than North America. Similar to how the US is so much cheaper than Canada.

Filled my bike up today, premium was 1.289$CAD/L ... sad sad day since it cost me 15$ to fill up. Last summer I never managed over 12$

Also keep in mind different sizes of a 'gallon' depending where you are talking about.
