I am wanting to buy a specific type of performance ram that is compatible with my pc.  It costs $797 from a usa based website. If I buy it now and I order online would I have to pay any additional fees when the ram arrives in New Zealand because the package will probably be the same size as a tv remote. If I do have to pay some customs fees I am going to the usa later in the year so if I bought it in the usa and brought it back to new zealand in my suitcase I won't have to pay any fees or declare that I have some ram right? I have had friends buy digital cameras overseas before and they bought them back in their suitcase and their suitcase wasn't searched.

You will pay GST and customs fees if it's mailed or couriered to NZ, but if you bring it in your luggage it probably won't be noticed.

As an aside, what kind of ram is it, and why do you think it'll help performance? From what i've read the best ram might be about 2% faster than the worst, in the same motherboard.
