    Buying Parts In Germany

    Hi team,

    I just moved to Germany from New Zealand and had to leave my i920/5870 behind. It's been two days and I'm already thinking about a new rig.

    Only problem being that I have no clue where to go with regard to retailers.

    In NZ we had a site called Pricespy which would give comparisons across e-tailers, is there a similar site which does the same for Germany? Can anyone recommend a store close to Landau which is reputable and reasonable in prices?

    Thanks,

    A Kiwi far from home.
    No rig right now.

    Here you go :

    http://geizhals.at/deutschland/

    It's in German, so I'll translate a couple of words for you :

    Festplatten = Harddrives
    Speicher = Memory
    Grafikkarten = Videocards
    Optische Laufwerke = Optical drives, like DVD-RW etc...
    Drucker = Printer
    Luftkühlung = Aircooling
    Wasserkühlung = Watercooling

    When you click an item, you'll find all the stores that sell the product (called "Anbieter").
    Händlerbewertung = Reseller rating.
    Verfügbarkeit = Availability


    An example :

    Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD4 mainboard :

    http://geizhals.at/deutschland/a477655.html

    Preise = Price (from lowest to highest)
    Anbieter = Shop
    Händlerbewertung = Reseller rating (the rating the store gets from customers. It's not a general rating, but it will give you a good idea if a certain store is OK to buy from or not. Ratings below 2.00 are good. Avoid shops with ratings above 3.00 or higher).
    The lower the rating, the better the shop is.
    Verfügbarkeit und Versand = Availability and shipping costs

    Hope this helps you a little bit.
    Welcome to Europe.

    No problem.

    About payments :

    Vorkasse = Pay in advance (item will be shipped once the payment is in)
    Nachname = COD (you pay the postman when he brings the package)

    Some stores offer payment through CC. Check if no additional costs are asked when paying with CC.

    If you have to translate words you can also you the leo.org service, it should help you find your way to some nice new hardware.

    Another well-known German hardware etailer is Alternate, I use it for most of my purchases, they're not the cheapest shop around but their service is excellent.
    The site Jupiler linked is indeed the biggest German site for price comparison, that's good advice!

    Welcome to Germany!
