Cheaper PC Components?

Postby Dr Feelgood on Thu Aug 04, 2005 4:14 pm

I'm building my own PC.

All I need now is a CPU & a GFX card.

Does anyone know of any websites where the prices are cheaper than the UK based websites.

I don't mind getting stuff from abroad if it works out cheaper.

EU countries may be OK, but be aware that if parts fail, the returns policies in other countries will not be the same as in this country.
By Law, new products in the UK are covered by a 12 month waranty, this may not be the case in other countries and you will have to acertain before purchase what particular law governs any return you make.

make sure they mark it down as a gift when they send it, otherwise you have to pay a fee.

Allso remember that products bought in from the USA are subject to international postage charges and VAT @ 17.5% .

As Chavvy sugests, can be the only method of avoiding VAT, but be carefull, you don't want to mess with customs and excise. They have more powers than any other body including the police and Tax office, put together.
