    No ways Pal U system Will Perfectly BE compatible With Those Parts But yea No Guarantee Or warranty Will be Given If It is Illegally Shipped In......If Perfectly Authorised Hardware is purchased Then U can Send The Complaint To The Dealer Of That COuntry and May be They'll Do the Necessary Stuff (Which is a Long Procedure and a Big Pain In The :twisted: )......So The Best Option Would Be To Purcahse One from our won country Or may be u Can visit any Custom Notified Shops For Puchasing These Foreign Stuff's......So Go Ahead Mate Purchase At Your Will 8)

    off to "never ever" land
    OMG !!
    now that im done lmao
    let me see of i can explain
    computer hardware work on FIXED voltages ...
    thats 5v/12v
    which ur PSU provides
    so ahrdware will be compatible anywehre in teh world irrespective of voltage and frequency

    the problem is the PSU itself
    thats the one that u need compatible with ur countries voltage/frequency
    so its very safe to buy hardware from abroad ... specially since its cheaper if u can get it past the customs ;)

    hmm not a very experienced hardware buywer are u?

    I have got my Maxtor 250gb HDD from New York.
    There are a lot of rebate sale which happen some time there....
    The HDD was brought and was shipped by my brother which is working for a hospital there.

    It is very much possible that u can buy and use in ur home PC.

    For mainstream products at standard retail prices, there isn't much difference between Indian and US markets, but there can be a considerable price gap with rebates, and also for new stuff. E.g., several years ago, when a 128MB PC133 SDRAM stick still cost 5-6k in India, I bought some sticks with Hynix chips from the US for the equivalent of 2.4k each. The average street price in the US at that time was about 3k for a no-name brand and a little higher for the big names.

    The main thing that can go Boom! when a US product is installed in India is the PSU (SMPS) if it is shipped with the voltage selector at 115V and is plugged into an Indian power outlet. But I don't think that's what the OP meant :)
