Default Flex-Riser cards???

Sorry if this is the wrong forum.

Is there anywhere in Canada that sells x16 PCI-e flex riser cards? Something similar to this:

ARC1-PEVX16A2-Cx

Amazon seems to have what you're needing:

I got one off of eBay for a couple of bucks shipped. Likely under $10 IIRC.

I looked at a couple of them and unfortunately they look like US operations so the concern would be brokerage fees.

Last year when I was looking for a pci riser I found some here in Canada, but they were silly expensive... finally ended up using a Chinese ebay seller for something like $2 apiece.

Not sure, you'd have to ask them. They distribution centers and whatnot all over the place so you never know. They're set up to sell to Australia from the same site without much hassle from what I've heard so you'd think Canada would be taken care of too.

They're pretty global. I've bought games before they were released in the States from Amazon.co.uk before without paying any premiums, which was pretty nice.

Thanks for all of the suggestions. It looks like it'll be the eBay route for me.
