    Well folks, I have the deal for you here:

    CBC

    I just pre-ordered mine; stock is scheduled to arrive with them on the 11th of this very month (3 days after my 30th, feel free to donate funds to my "just for men" fund to keep my hairy chin dark) and the postage cost is £4.95 for UK...including N.I. which is unheard of :respect:

    WOOT WOOT :D

    Link now points at actual item!

    Site looks a little shady...its probably fine but I'd spend an extra £20 or so and get it from a respected dealer like Scan or Ebuyer.

    lol, this is what I did for my laptop, I got my sister-in-law to buy it, and then transferred the money over in installments.
    I wonder if she'll do the same, but this time, withoutthe money being paid back, heh.

    Thats not a bad deal.. only about US$40 bucks more than the us..

    They have em for $320 over here... Still a friggin good deal. Its cheaper than any 320mb GTS..

    Here is a cheap one in Aussie for anyone interested, its at Jantech computers which I have bought from before and they seem pretty good:

    £130 is rouhgly $260, on a link that e-rocker posted, to search results on Newegg for the 8800GT, the cheapest one I saw they were selling, was $270. It's strange, but it's actually CHEAPER here, especially once you factor in that the company is losing money from the VAT charges.

    I'd love to buy this, then claim VAT back, but I'm an EU citizen, they'd never buy it, that's it's never going to come back into the country, heh.

    Actually, you can buy a 8800GT 512MB card in the US for $230 ;)

    I have a feeling that it's a typo. I suspect he meant $230 not 320.

    I've been to that site before, 99% of the time to GOOD hardware people would actually want are out of stock, and the site does look a bit iffy.. also see this google link: http://www.google.co.uk/products?q=8800GT 512MB&oe=utf-8&scoring=p most of those sites look like THE SAME website, only with slightly diff prices and a different name at the top.. hmm...
