Default Ordering for US

I've never ordering anything outside of Canada before so I'm just wondering whether or not there are other fees after tax+shipping that I'll have to pay. I'm ordering a Da Box 100 Blackheart from lan-gear.com and just trying to figure out the total amount I'll be paying.

thank you.

oh, if it helps the price of the case is 179.99 USD, shipping I beleive is 56 bucks with Fedex.

Unless they're willing to ship USPS (US Postal Service) you might want to re-consider. The Brokerage fees that the private shippers charge for getting an item through customs are generally not worth the hassle.

This case may be of interest to you: SilverStone Technology Co., Ltd - Designing Inspiration

Silverstone stuff typically shows up in Canada, so shipping won't be so bad. I think it was just released, or coming soon, so it may be a while. It's also only ITX rather than mATX so that limits your motherboard choices.

There's also this Lian-Li that's mATX and pretty decent cooling: Lian Li Industrial Co., Ltd.

I'm trying to decide whether to go for an mitx gaming rig or matx. Sugo07 was my first choice but I hear it's going to be awhile for it to show up in Canada. I think I might just go for the Lian Li PCQ08 with Gigabyte's H55N-USB3.
