Greetings,

I'm in the UK, London to be precise and I'm in need of an American whom lives near Microcenter that can help with the purchase of a CPU (Intel i5 2500k).

http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml...

UK prices that's £110, usually the prices in nearlly every store in the UK is £170 which is roughly $220+ However I found it online on Microcenter for $169 little did I know they don't ship internationally :( 

Is there any American that can help me out, I need someone to buy the product for me, place it on ebay for the same price + P&P (should be roughly $10-$20).

I know you won't make a profit or money out of it but I just need this favour, I'm not blessed enough to live near a Microcenter sadly.

You can also get $50 instantly off a Z77 or Z68 motherboard with a 2500k and some other k series CPUs, FYI. I just did that.

Sorry just to correct myself, I would like:

ASRock Z68 Extreme3 + Intel i5 2500k, how much would it cost and is there anybody willing to help me out please? I'm paying for all the fees! I just need someone to buy it and sell it to me due to microcenter not shipping abroad

It's not going to be as inexpensive as you think.

$170 + 8.75% tax = $184
Cost to ship a package from NYC to London using standard United State Postal Service priority mail (6 to 10 days) = $48 flat rate medium box up to 20lbs or roughly 9kg.

Total Cost = $232

Click following link to calculate estimated shipping cost to your location. You can use NYC 10019 zip code as the point of origin.

Based on current exchange rates £170 is about $264. That saves you about £21.

Not really worth the hassle in my opinion.

Hi :) 

I am Uk as well...

You will also have to pay VAT at 20% plus import duty....if customs catch it....

So add another 35% roughly to those costs...

All the best Brett :)

...and cover all ebay + paypal fees.

Sounds like quite the headache to me, particularly if either should be DOA.

which would be around 10-15% with post fee, sales fee, and paypal fee. using jaguars figures, you would spend more money buying the CPU from microcenter and re-reimbursing using ebay & paypal then just getting one in the UK.
