Order Germany to UK - Plug's different?

Hi,

I'm wondering if anybody from the UK has ordered computer parts from Europe mainland? I'm currently looking at the website: http://www3.hardwareversand.de/home.jsp?lb which does some good deals but I'm worried all their plugs will be two pin (use 3 pin plugs in the UK due to additional earth).

Has anyone had this problem before?

    I would prefer if the computer was fully earthed (i.e. British plug type) but I'm afraid that all the european manufacturers only provide european plugs...
  2. Buy a converter?
  3. If you are buying parts, can't you just get your PSU from the UK.
  4. Of course! That had completely slipped my mind!

    My wife is from America and she brought her Laptop over when she moved in. We just replaced the power transformer with a UK one and all was dandy
