you have to make sure about voltage (120 vs 240)... maybe amp too... not too sure... so you can use most parts from asian... i THINK...

CTA is right, other than a powersupply that may be Fixed at 220-240V AC, every part from China should work. Just be wary of software bundles! It won't be English... lol
