In the US, a Intel Core i3-2120 CPU on Amazon costs $122/£72
But in the Uk, a Intel Core i3-2120 CPU on Amazon costs £91

Why is that? That's not fair..

So what is the best site to buy pc parts in the uk?

Currency conversions. The British Pound is worth more than the US dollar is (at current exchange 1GBP = 1.557USD), but if you look those up on a currency conversion calculator they come out to about the same.

differences in import duty and tax rates, i.e. the US equivelent to VAT will be different as will the amount taxed when it enters the country. not complex.
