Hello everyone! I was browsing around for deals on buying multiple GPUs in bulk. I came across AliExpress, and they have some sick pricing. However, from what I've read on the internet about them, some dealers are legit, some are not. It's like a Chinese ebay... does anyone have experience buying GPUs from them? I'm specifically looking at these two links (NVidia, because folding Cheesy):
http://www.aliexpress.com/item/Brand-New-GeForce-GTX-TITAN-6GB-GDDR5-384bit-Graphics-Cards-06G-P4-2790-KR/1080872821.html
http://www.aliexpress.com/item/Brand-New-GeForce-GTX-780-SuperClocked-3GB-GDDR5-384bit-GTX780-Graphics-Cards-03G-P4-2783-KR/1035322418.html

Any experiences?

I wouldn't touch them. They're cheap for a reason...

There are a lot of legit sellers on there (and a lot of bad eggs) but the products are usually fakes. You can tell which products are real because they are usually priced higher than retail.

EDIT: Looking at your links. Don't touch them! Never ever EVER buy anything from there from a seller with no feedback.

Figured such would be the response, guess I was overly-hopeful xD

I bought some cheap stuff on there (batteries, etc.) and they usually are fine.


Shipping takes about 30 days though so you'll have to take that into consideration.

I got a few things from them and it was all fine. Just make sure they have (a lot of) positive feedback before doing business with the seller.

Don't buy from people without history and tons of good feedback.

AliExpress has an escrow service, the seller only gets the money when you confirm recieving the goods. ~2 weeks shipping to EU. Sticking to the big sellers with lots of feedback is not a bad idea though.

AliExpress is like wholesale eBay. BUT...their resolution process is AWFUL. I had an order that didn't arrive, it took 6 MONTHS for them to resolve it. In the end I wrote off the $100, only for them to decide in my favour and refund me 3 months later. Rather use eBay, their resolution process is insanely fast and very fair (I say that as an occasional eBay seller).
