they ship to SL, but you might wanna buy a bunch of stuff like ram, hdd and some coz the shipping would only make sense then. Their rates are very good for the price. the following is what i ordered from them yesterday:

Seagate 1.5TB SATA2 7200rpm 32MB NCQ Hard Drive      $131.15

Thermaltake CL-P0401 V1 Enthusiast Core i7 /LGA775           $42.01

DDR2-800 4GB (2x2GB) CL5 S-RIGID Memory Kit               $42.00

LG GGC-H20L LightScribe Blu-ray/HD DVD Combo Drive (Black)   $125.99  (this is a steal)

BTW, they have WILDLY fluctuating prices throughout the week, yesterday the cooler was @ 42 today its at $50 so you should be patient and wait for their daily specials and order. I missed the opportunity to bag the 1.5TB hdd for $115, it went up by around $15 on the day i ordered :( - good luck (shipping cost around $75)



shipping cost $75 for whole lot eh? do we have to go to the customs and collect them, or somehow we get them right at the door step? (which courier service btw). also, how long do they take to ship?

p.s.
not to disappoint you but watch out for this ok: http://www.tomshardware.com/news/seagate-barracuda-1-5TB-freezing,6582.html

is USPS Express Mail International, however I used a different shipping method (that concierge service thing and they were sending me through fedex or UPS). I'll post a full review of the experience. According to the concierge service, they will be paying the taxes and clearing and doorstep delivery. stay tuned, i'll let u know how it goes.

Also, i'm $hit scared of that freezing issue on the drive now. but it said they are working on a bios revision so fingers crossed.

K... 8) Guys, Here is my New Gaming Rig ;).....LeoN's Rig '09:).
             
                      (Y)

Mobo - Foxconn Black Ops X48 With Sonar Sound Card
Processor - Quad 2.4 GHZ (OC to 3.4)
VGA - EVGA 8800 ULTRA (768 MB)
Hard Drive - Hitachi Deskstar 7K500 500GB SATA-II
Ram - DDR 3 (1333 FSB) 2GB (Single slot)
Power Supply - Ever-Power (600 watts)
Keyboard - Logitech G15 (2007 Edition)
Mouse - Logitech G9
Monitor - Samsung SyncMaster (930B)
Speaker - 5.1 Kenwood Home Theatre System
Router - Netgear DG834Gv5 (Wireless)
& Etc.........................

*I'm not good in managing inside my chassis cable. Specially i like to tell u guys that i have abt 6 (120mm Fan 1 & 80mm Fan 5) chassis fan inside my "Armour SE" & my temp is 55C (OC 3.48 GHZ)

*Most Probably gonna change my Monitor & VGA before April.
 VGA - ATI Radeon HD 4870 X2 or EVGA GeForce GTX 295 (On Mid March)
 Monitor - Acer Ferrari 22'

***Guys need Feed Back :yes:

awesome rig mate.
whered u get the Ultra and how much? And what are the peak GPU temps like when running Crysis maxed out?

that Kenwood system looks great but isn't it too much for near-field?

Case looks good, is that the one from EGS? does it have a front intake fan?

Ur Ultra looks very different from mine (the heatsink shroud). Are u sure its not a GTX?

with better cable management u can reduce ur temps as well as make it less of an eyesore.

Hey bud, how did u pay? by Credit card or Wire transfer?

The website itself accepts sri lankan Credit Cards including amex, visa and master. However, since their shipping options were not flexible enough (usps snail mail ems for
$75++ with me having to clear goods myself and deal with unscrupulous customs officers who probably will try to Over value my goods).

So I got the concierge service to place the order with them through Amex (they charge it to my account with a nominal 5% commission).

The order breakdown was:
Sub total - USD 341.15
local shipping from vendor to concierge service - $ 13.21
concierge service commission - $17.05
Total charged to my card prior to International shipping - $ 372.00

International Shipping - $ 70.00

Total Order - $442.00 (before any taxes which should be around 6% of goods value before shipment; around $22)

The concierge service has the following shipping rates (Fedex 3/4 day): $70.00 for up to 3.5kg parcel (the above stuff is within the weight limit) and $4.50 for every 0.5kg over that.

Again, I don't recommend this unless you are obtaining a whole bunch of stuff (that spreads out the shipping costs) and even then mostly things that you clearly cannot get here like the blu-ray drive thermaltake v1 fan, considering the warranty enforcement issues over the pond.

altogether it'll be close to $500 before u get ur hands on them? I suppose its worth it just for the BluRay drive.

this concierge service sound s similar to the Aramex Shop and Ship method.

slightly offtopic but good for anyone interested in this type of shopping: the key difference being Aramex gives you a US mailing address for you to forward your shopping to, which they in turn post it to you. The concierge does the same but they will also place the order for you and make the payment.

The reason you need this additional service sometimes is that some websites do not ship to mailing addresses different from your billing address IF the credit card being used is an International one. They however are more flexible with different billing/mailing addresses if the cards were issued in the US (which obviously voids the reason to use such a service in the first place)

I think i'm still saving roughly 25k with this online order considering the prices quoted to me by local dealers recently.

actually leon even i'm interested in what your ultra is running @ load.

My Asus 8800 ultra was running @ 90c full load with good cooling and 100c with baaaad air flow in the casing (quickly sorted that problem before it fried all my circuits lol)

Mine was running at 100C as well, but that was cos of my horrible Codegen 500w PSU I had. It was running hot and instead of venting the heat outside the bloody case most of it was being dumped inside.

After i got an ASUS PSU evrything was OK. Ultra peak temps went down by 10 degrees!!

I got an update on this ewiz site.
I had ordered an Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 pro from them via SLmega, and the SLmega guy says that even after a week or more they still haven't received the order.

So order at ur own risk.
