    Hi guys n girls,

    I was just looking for some advice, I've found an ATI X1800XT card on Newegg that I would like, however the priceis in dollars.
    Now my problem is, if I buy this will I just pay the conversion price of this in GBP, or will they add the UK's VAT, I know this might sound strange, but I've not actually every bought anything from abroad.

    Cheers

    I'm afraid that Newegg only ship within the US, you'll need to find a local supplier :(

    Smalldog will ship to the UK, might be a little expensive though....

    I asked one of my friends in England (he doesn't use Macs) and he said that his Mac friends like this place:

    The best thing to do, though, is to ask someone you know that is good with computers where they get their parts from.

    I'd call or e-mail OWC (www.macsales.com) just to check if they ship international.
    I think Datamem.com also ships international, but I'm not sure if they carry anything but RAM.
