Cheap build - ordering overseas?

so I'm putting together a cheap build and i've already got a case, hdd, dvdrw and all the non vital components, i just need a mobo, ram, psu and cpu so I'm thinking Athlon tri core with some inexpensive fast ram and a mobo which has some room for upgrade and so far this is what i have

total cost: 138

what i want is to see if i can bring the price down any more and also i want to know if anyone from the UK has ordered from overseas before as newegg has the cpu at $80 which is allot cheaper than the UK

what do you need to know before ordering PC parts or anything really from overseas?

  1. Hi :)

    I run UK computer shops and would love to buy from the US....BUT... you have to pay IMPORT DUTY + VAT you can add on around 25 to 30 % PLUS carriage....

    Its not worth it im afraid....

    All the best Brett :)
  2. not sure newegg deliver to the uk

    you may be liable to pay for anything from outside the european union one or more of the following

    customs duty

    excise duty

    import VAT
  3. Lot of US retailers don't ship internationally. Only US, Canada.

    E: Err got beaten to it, badly. :D
  4. thanks for the info, any ideas on where i might be able to get any of these components cheaper?
