Alright, I've used both Aria and Scan in the past, but only for the odd component here and there.
Finally decided to go with a fresh build so I started putting pieces in a basket on Scan, but while I was checking reviews for GPU's I noticed that the prices were very similar in $ as they were in £. I expected prices in the US to be a little cheaper as per usual, but to satisfy my curiosity, I went to Newegg and put identical items in the basket there.
So, 5 identical items in both baskets:
Scan - £672 (inc shipping)
Newegg - $864 ~£550 (w/o shipping)
22% more expensive or an average of £24 per item
I know I'm having a bit of a rant here, but that is ridiculous. I can't even import them because the UK import tax would mean it would be more expensive.
Anyway, anybody know of some dodgy looking-but-actually-safe UK web shop that sells stuff at reasonable prices?
