Yes I need some help with online shopping.... but I live in freaking Canada.
What kind of prices on shipping should I be expecting. I figure everyone here talks about shopping online and I feel I'm missing out on good deals.
If I'm gonna end up saying lots of money I'll b every happy :)
But if I save a buck or two I won't bother.

I've noticed Immortal does alot of online shopping so how bout you help me out man.
I live in Toronto btw and there are a fair ammount of deals here but I find I have no time to shop...even though I could be using this time here typing to shop instead.... :( ....anyway.... any suggestions?
I'm mainley looking for a full size aluminum case.
Peace all.

the tarrif and shipping cost and currency will pretty much all destroy the "good deal" that you so much desire.

So far the best deal I can think of for you is the Antec 1030sx case, they are selling it for $155CAD w/o tax at CCE and at Filtech downtown, probably the best case for you, I don't suggest a full tower, as they are HUGE and eat up a serious amount of space. But its all up to you.

The main purpose for me to purchase things online is because I can't find that piece anywhere else... You don't save all that much, but sometimes you can, duh! heheh, if you buy it off a Canadian site then it's even better, but I've noticed that people from Toronto have to pay a little more tax on certain items. I just bought 50$ worth of stuff without tax and shipping was only 8$.... ;) I thought that was a bargain since it seems so cheap. Anyways, the amount I must pay for transportation to go shopping is roughly the same as shipping cost ;)

Thanks for the advice guys. I just don't see why I have to be stuck with buying what a store has. Terrance I was looking at Lian Li and all there is downtown is the simple mid sized brushed aluminum case for like $300.00. I wouldn't mind a black or gold case. Just damn hard to find.
