Computer Stores

Does anybody know of any decent computer stores that sell internal pc fans, lighting, watercooling parts.

Instead of always having to buy on line, Id like to be able to go into a store and pick up some red LED 200 mm pc fans. A funky 5.25 slot fan controller bay. some internal pc lighting ect.

interdiscount and fust seem to be the only walk in places and there not really very good for what im looking for.

Any Recommendations people.
I live in the Zug area and can head as far as zurich or luzern.

Re: Computer Stores

Steg Computer has a store in Luzern.

http://www.stegcomputer.ch/de/filial...x.php?active=4

Click on the Luzern link at you will get the detailed page with directions, shop hours etc.

Have a look at the on-line store for what you need. Gives you the stock level of each store as well so you don't make the trip for nothing.

Generally the worst place to buy enthusiast PC components... meagre choice and highly overpriced.

totally agree. Mediamarkt is a waste of time for pc components

I've played around with a few shops online etc. in CH and Digitec has become my staple. They almost always have the cheapest prices, they are big and established and have fast delivery (and usually free too).

I have found other places to be a bit cheaper once in a while, but usually it's some guy with a website which can be a bit sketch if something goes wrong, plus add shipping costs.

You could order it from Dell online- it shouldn't take too long to ship...

...or you could get an international adapter at any MediaMarkt, InterDiscount, CoopCity, etc. You don't need a converter, because the black 'brick ' will handle 100v (similar to US electricity) to 240v (Europe) power sources. Plan on 20-30 CHF for something like this, more for the Dell option.

Online. From a manufacturer that has a US presence, or an online resale site. Otherwise, you could hunt around electronics/computer stores and maybe you find one.

Some of the online laptop sites let you spec the keyboard you want when putting together your order. Apple certainly does, and so does (spit) Dell, for example.

On the other hand, the CH keyboard lets you type in all the main languages of the country. I took about 3 weeks to stop typing "kezboard" for "keyboard" and since then it's been fine.

You can set the layout to whatever you are used to, via the OS.

Very true. My wife has a Dell laptop with a Euro keyboard, but she simply set it to US English and it maps all the keys to the way they are on a US keyboard, so as long as you can touch type, you're good to go.
