    I'm moving to Sweden. Where should I buy computer parts from?

    As the title states, I'm moving to Sweden and can't figure out where to buy computer parts from. I usually buy computer parts from newegg, tigerdirect or Amazon, but none of those places ship to Sweden, or if they do they throw in a very hefty shipping price. So my question is, does anyone know of some good websites or any kind of chain stores where I would be able to buy computer parts? I would just take my computer with me but it's not very practical as it's very heavy and would cost almost the cost of the computer to take it with me, so I'm building a new one once I arrive there. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

    I would but we don't have the suitcase weight available, which is why I have to buy them in Sweden.

    Curious. How old are you? Your move doesn't seem very well put together

    I'm 27. The move is actually moving along extremely well. We queue'd up properly for our apartment (everything has queue's in Sweden), we have guaranteed income, proper savings, our pet dog has her passport, we've been cleared by the Swedish government for our permanent residency cards. Literally the only thing that I don't know is where to buy computer parts as I don't know Swedish and I've always had a desktop. I don't understand what isn't put together.

    Take out your GPU (and HDD if it's mechanical) and ship it international via USPS. Should be around $100-130~. Take the GPU as luggage, easy peasy. No reason to waste all that money on a new build if you don't want to.

    I don't really mind for the most part building and buying a new computer. I sold the computer I was using for $800, which I feel was a fair price for it. I kept all my hard drives though and got anti static bags and properly wrapped them to take them in my luggage. The most important part of my computer, to me, is my four hard drives. I can replace parts but a lot of the stuff on my hard drives would be more difficult to replace.

    Komplett.se or Webhallen.se is what I typically use and have been for years. inet.se is also good

    That's why this forum is awesome, he asks a simple question and you insult him without giving any help on the actual topic

    OT
    Good luck with your move, the others have given you great suggestions already

    You can either compare individual parts on www.prisjakt.nu and hunt for prices (but beware of less amounts of reviews on some of the stores, they can be crooked), otherwise CDON.se (which can be a bitch to navigate if you don't know Swedish though), komplett.se, inet.se, webhallen.com, komplett.se, dustin.se, alina.se and proshop.se are all good stores.

    Inet is a store I have extensive love and experience with; if I order something on a Tuesday at 2PM, I can expect to pick it up* Wednesday by noon.

    * As in, at my local package delivery drop-off, like a grocery store

    You realize if you had a OS on a HD that you had data on it you wanted it is now lost as you will get a blue screen of Death upon attempted boot. also windows wont work. nor will they let you most likely use a old cd key for the OS.

    inet.se and webhallen.com are the places I'm a frequent customer. Both have actual boutiques you can visit but they of course also deliver. I can imagine inet.se being the easiest one to sift through (given you run it through google translate).

    You can also usually order things through amazon.co.uk, but it usually costs the same and you just have to wait longer for parts.

    I think OP knows that. But you can definitely access the personal data on an OS-drive as long as you're not silly enough to boot from it.

    You could also technically boot from it if you either 1) Build a computer with the same motherboard chipset
    or 2) have prepared the OS installation with the sysprep tool which prompts the OS to throw out all drivers and reinstall upon next boot.

    Can you buy all the small stuff here and buy case/psu once you are over there?

    I'm actually thinking about doing that as I might be able to save a few hundred dollars that way. I'm actually checking that out right now, it was the reason I logged in.
