Default Parts in Thailand

Hi everyone, I am headed to thailand in abotu a month or so and i was wondering if anyone knows if they have really cheap PC parts there. I guess what i would be looking for would be an upgrade to my processor, better video cards and i definitely need a new PSU. Plus i wouldnt mind a new cell phone or bluetooth headset. Maybe a digital camera (video or photo). LOL. I lust electronics as u can tell.

Anyone knwo where to find anything and if its worht it to buy from there (just in case it doesnt work).

I'll be in bangkok for a few days and roaming some of the islands (Koh samui, koh phangang, phuket).

THX.

I wouldn't get my computer parts from there because if it doesn't work u might have a hard time getting a new one with the warranty.

I would buy a digital camera etc. because u can test it before u leave the country. So if it doesn't work u can always take it back.

well it depends. There always is a risk. If u want to take it then go ahead.
Most likely it will work just fine.

But I wouldn't get a new vid card, unless I could get it for like 1/3 of the price. Then I'd think about it.

So if u wouldnt get a new video card, then what would you get? Look at my specs, what else should i upgrade? CPU?
