According to X.com's universal currency converter 1 british pound equals 1.91 american dollars.So you would have to almost double the prices for american dollars.

Nice. But make sure your 6600 GT is AGP. I think the MSI mobo that you're getting is AGP, not PCI-E.

Default Alvino's right

Ive been an MSi fan for a long time , alvino's right thats no PCI-E board, that means agp 8x, that also means a higher 6600gt pricetag, watch that because the PCI-E ones are about 50 US dollars cheaper.
Try newegg.com for some good prices i dont know if they do foriegn orders or not, but im pretty sure they do. all theyre price are in US dollars so get a converter ready

Just a correction:

AGP cards are not 50 bucks more expensive. A while ago they were, but now there is about a 10-15 dollar difference. Just thought I'd point that out. I looked today on Newegg.

I would go with two 80GB hard-drives, and have a back-up.
