What is B&H if you don't mind me asking? And I've always wondered why do local retailers charge massive premiums? Taxes? Are GPU's actually luxury electronics? Looking to get a 5600 xt - any idea what the cheapest way to do this? Sorry if this has been asked else where.

I too, do not want to buy local
B&H is a US retailer, a 5600XT can be brought down for 60Kish ($316) it seems

This isn't the best time to buy new parts though, IMO

Sometime back at the Central Mail Exchange, I was told basic computer parts get taxed at a much lower rate compared to gaming parts while clearing out some stuff. How they determine it to be "gaming" appears to be ambiguous at best, similar to how most used PC shops sell 'gaming' systems for a higher premium than a 'normal' one, it's mostly to do with flashy colours, lights and what's on the box.
Haven't checked the HS codes on those specifically but our tax system is messed up and people there expect us to go through unofficial methods so that they get a cut anyway, Sri Lanka after all. So not sure if they were just pulling my leg to make a quick buck.

I use B&H these days because of this covid curfew. They use DHL express. and its cheaper, faster than any other website. And yeah aliexpress is unusable right now. :(
Thanks man! Didn't know they offer direct international shipping, I've always used Amazon / Newegg for parts.
They do seem to offer cheaper shipping than many other places, only $36 for the above 5600XT. Is tax included? Doesn't seem to specify that. Wouldn't want a nasty surprise at the doorstep.

Are you planning to run 2x4GB + 1x8GB? Not a good option if so since that will push the board into interleaved or single channel asymmetric mode instead of proper dual channel.

OTOH, if you are willing to replace the core of the system (I switched CPU + MB + RAM from a 4590 + Z87 + 8GB which was similar except non-K), do send me a PM with the price for the motherboard please :)

Nah man, planning on running 2 x 8gb to ensure i have the dual channel set up going :) Thanks for the info!

I know it's an old one but I have been using one for the last 10 years or so and it's still as good as ever. I don't want to make the jump to DDR4 just yet since it would make most of my current parts redundant - so I am looking to buy just one 8gb corsair vengeance ddr3 stick.

Anyone selling or know where I could get one?

Will parts we import actually arrive / get cleared though?
AliExpress has stopped almost all items being available to Sri Lanka.
