Buying from EVGA.com

I see that the US EVGA site usually has good deals. Anyone with experience buying from there? Was wondering which forwarder you use and roughly how much it cost to import to SG. Am interested in getting some of their graphics cards (used/new).

I don't think they take local credit cards. And given the state of GPU shortage in US, by the time your forwarder's purchasing team received your buy-for-me order, probably sold out already.

I bought EVGA GPU directly from Amazon. Ships straight to Singapore, no need forwarder. But might not have the deals you're looking for on Amazon.

Forwarder is very risky for such high priced items. I would not risk anything above SGD$400.

correct me if i am wrong but i thought having your purchase shipped over by a forwarder is more reliable as they would buy insurance for your shipping and they would be able to assist you in the event that the item is lost/damaged during shipping

Amazon is reliable enough. I have had packages gone missing and Amazon was always quick to replace.

Haven't bought from Newegg in years so not sure about them.

There's a cap. Ezbuy is 100 only. So depends on forwarder. Most of them though caps out to around 300.
