Hi Guys,

Building a new computer and thinking of purchasing parts from the U.S and wondering if they are compatible for use with australian parts.

Thanks

Apart from the PSU, parts like mainboards, memory, video cards are likely to be the exact same parts. PSUs could be universal voltage too, but you'd want to make sure. You probably don't want a dial-up modem, but if you did you'd want to get a local one.

But why would you want to drag stuff across from the US? That would be a real pain if any are faulty or need RMA during warranty.

I've been on www.msy.com.au and for a motherboard, cpu, ram it'll cost about $1000. Then through this website I found www.newegg.com & once the currency exchange it'll be about $850.

Just shopping around a the moment.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I live in brisbane.

Most PSUs have a switch on it to change from 110V to 230V -240V.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Newegg.com does not offer International/Canadian shipping options at this time.

Unfortunately, you're going to have to find another place to buy parts.
