Default I cant believe how much the UK pays for things!

Just recently Computa Freek posted that he got some artic silver for 5 pounds. I got mine for $5.00 which translates into 2.75 pounds. Hmm thats nearly double.

Then I was also just checking our this price for a mobo combo and i could assemble one for 100 pounds less($183) if bought with us dollars.

You guys are really getting ripped off.

Yeah, we do pay outragous prices for things, though its on most things, not just computer parts and accessories

Its worth it to be British and not American. Lol

Thats why in the next General Election - everybody has to Vote Lord Kalthorn for Prime Minister - and Britain would never be the same again.
