never heard of zotac before leh. is it good? will it work with my motherboard??

what about this?

Amazon.com: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 660 OC 2GB GDDR5 PCI-Express 3.0 DVI-I/DVI-D/HDMI/Displayport SLI Ready Graphics Card GV-N660OC-2GD: Computers & Accessories
all pci express cards will work with your mobo...it depends on whether u play games...else any cheap gfx card less than 100sgd is enough.

street pricing u can checkout SLS or just download the pricelists from hwz.

RMA back to where u bought it from unless it has international warranty i think...

so for eg. if you bought msi, local warranty...if u wanna rma you got to ship it back to the US.

but if you buy evga, international warranty...if u wanna rma you got to ship it to taiwan...i think..not too sure myself also.
i havent had to RMA anything back to amazon...but u can try chatting with their staff online...they r very flexible in terms of refunds, exchanges, rebates, etc...

For all Gfx Cards, Sound Cards & Motherboards bought in USA. RMA need to send back to USA.

Only EVGA you need to send to Taiwan or Hong Kong.

If you bring it to Local SG Distributors to RMA, they might help but need to charge you minimum $100~$150 admin & handling fees with 30days turnaround.
best to check with the local distro on warranty procedures before u go ahead to buy from amazon.

one last note...if u order from amazon make sure u pay in USD. they charge exorbitant rates using the currency converter feature...not worth it.

Sapphire and Zotac allow you to send back to their headquarter in H.K.
Personally ive emailed them and they say yes.

Every single item i bought from amazon saved me SGD50 easily.

Even if need to RMA, it's still cost less than SGD50 for registered mail to RMA back to, be it even U.S.

Imagine a whole damnn com consist of 10 parts, it would have saved u min. SGD250 just by buying half of them from U.S.

Amazon has the best customer service in the industry so far.

wah this amazon free shipping really gives a push to local distributor and retailer. Very poisonous indeed!

Just a heads up, whenever big boys like Amazon show up. Ppl will cheer.

But in USA, some ppl get so addicted to Amazon they feel bad when their local stores start closing coz cannot compete. Maybe

one day...
