Its good for expensive items like GPU when even after paying shipping and customs it still sometimes become cheaper then our local market rates.
I don't think I agree with that. It's gonna still cost you more. Since you paid import fees + sales tax and everything just for that 1 item. Where as when the big shopkeepers sell you their charges get distributed over the whole unit and they buy at wholesale rate.

IMO it's gonna cost you more. Either way, if you don't wanna check with a cheap item all you can do is risk buying an expensive one hoping whatever they've written is true.

No it won't. It absolutely won't. Considering you buy directly from amazon and not sellers you can actually get it MUCH cheaper. My friend ordered and received EVGE FTW 2080 Super OC for around 130k last year. It was on a $50 off deal. In Pak many high end 2070 Super sell for 120k.

Look at 3080, fucking bad Zotac Trinity 3080 OC is listed at czone for 189k. YES 189,000 Rs for a REFERENCE card whose MSRP is $725 USD. If you buy it from amazon you WILL GET it for less then 150k PKR i can guarantee you that. That's considering you can find it in stock though.

Well then do try and share the results xD
I will buy 6800 XT from amazon Inshallah. Just hoping the supply issue with Big Navi isn't as bad as Nvidia 3000 series. I also intend to upgrade my 3900x to 5900x so may buy 5900x from amazon too and sale my 3900x here.
