Can try those carousell custom pc builder.

Got mine built from someone there, can intro you. Overall pleasant experience, the parts were during black friday sale purchase separately at a discount from shopee / amazon, cpu i ordered 5600x from taobao myself (about 430sgd max?) and shipped to him as locally it was out of stock.

Building fee he didn't charge me as i traded my quite old rig in to him.

Depends on the type of item also.

GPU on amazon lagi worse than buying from local store. Amazon about 5k+(haven't include shipping and gst yet) on average for whatever few 3080 left while local stores sell about 3k+.

Got sell just that their stocks not much one and usually only lower end types.

Some examples:


While the price is still higher than what we would pay during normal times, it is still much lower than what sellers on amazon are asking for,

:(
