    Hullo there :lol:

    Rite im thinking of getting a DD maze 3 + gf2/3 gpu block and maybe a rad but i was wondering if ne one here from the UK had ordered there stuff from America (as its lots cheaper, even when account for tax n stuff i think). Just wondering what it cost you in postige + tax + duty etc.

    I ordered direct from them just before the Sept 11 tradgey. Things were held up slightly, but I still got my goods in a respectable amount of time.

    I ordered a couple of block, a couple of rads, tubing and water wetter (the water wetter was also significantly cheaper than buying it in the UK!).

    I had no tax/import problems at all. Your mileage may vary though.

    I ordered a chrome BIX from DD; no problems occurred, came within a week or so and it looks sweet! Customs charged the usual 17% but I may try the "Happy Birthday" or "Gift" trick next time... :)

    I bought all stuff for Syrinix from DangerDen.

    Maze 2, GF3 WB, Chipset WB, radiator and silicone tube. After shipping and taxes were paid it was still a lot cheaper compared to buy it from anywhere in UK.

    Don't be scared of buying direct, they seem alot more organised than some and have never had any issues ordering from the US.

    I agree with Haddy a group order will often spread the cost.
