    yeah i think it's only to UK based customers, sometimes we may pay more for some things, but at times we do get the best offers around!

    hey its not bad at all, the chip on its own is about £90 and the board probably about £60, may not be too much off but it's more than nothing, thanks for sending your find, have to agree it is the better deal though.

    remember black edition doesnt come with a fan - so you would have to spend to get a suitable one.
