    Gentlemen / Ladies,

    Question: A friend of mine lives in Halfmoon Bay, British columbia and needs some computer parts video card and some memory. The place they can order from is London Drugs ??? I checked their prices and they are wayyy out of line for these parts. I am looking around here in the Mid Atlantic States for the parts to ship to them I know there is an import tax and from what I can find out on used stuff it isn't expensive. However, what I am trying to find out is there are some companies here in the US that ship to Canada or have Canadian locations I believe they add the tax on to the price shown has anyone ordered this way and had more tax added on recipt etc ?

    UPS or Fed Ex tack on brokerage fees

    Memory Express generally has free shipping if you're over a certain amount. I pretty much buy all my computer crap off them.

    If you send it via USPS it'd be super cheap. Otherwise yeah Memory Express is my go too. Additionally I know there's newegg.ca now too. Haven't priced anything on there though. (My PC is still a beast even after 2+ years.)

Hence the parts needed.:{

    Yeah not real sure about that class still slowly going through it took a demon hunter he is at 31 ish there was a thread for people who played my battle tag is there. The funnier thing is your age VS mine lol D2 would have been what when you were what 16 and D1 umm 12 ish :} Not busting on ya just think it's funny some of the games you would never have seen unless you were into old stuff. The progression of the graphics and interfaces has been fun to see. Do you recall mechwarrior, heretic, descent ?

    I loved Heretic 2. Never played the first one. I started off with Mechwarrior. PPC FTW!

    I remember playing the first Diablo with my buddy and fighting the butcher. One of us attacked while the other healed.

    My god those were good times. I had a level 44 Rogue that kicked more ass than I could count. :p I wish there was more difficulty levels with the first one. :(
