I live in the UK so I need the things from UK :S

Plus are these monitors good?

October 6, 2013 3:50:27 AM

Those monitors should be OK for gaming, and just copy and paste the names of each component into amazon, good prices there.

Alright let me just see if you can buy these at Amazon.co.uk & are those all the stuff I need to put into the desktop?:) 
October 6, 2013 3:55:45 AM

Yeah, you don't need anything else. If you can't find anything, just let me know and I'll try and find a replacement.

Alright, also I'm going to try buy these off the sites first but do they ship worldwide?
October 6, 2013 4:01:07 AM

You'll need to check with the seller's shipping terms, but I think most should.

Alright, because I'll be paying with Debit card + can you link me to the items please? because I'm finding different things.. + I have $78 on amazon.com that I don't need since I don't live there so can you give me something to buy from the items above on amazon?
October 6, 2013 4:14:50 AM



Thanks, I wanted to say that I live in the UK and I have some gift card balance on Amazon.com I have about $78.00 I might aswell use it to buy 1 of the parts if you know what I mean so I don't spend money when I have a spare $78.00 on .com to buy a part so can you link me to Amazon.com to buy any part that I need for $78.00 same thing..
October 6, 2013 4:23:04 AM

go to the product page and click '88 New' or the blue writing under the description. Then try and find somebody who will ship it here. If not, then you might have to get it from Amazon UK, but look for a seller through the link I mentioned.

Tried all of them nothing worked can we try another item?:) 

Plus I won't be getting these items or building my own PC until Christmas ..


October 6, 2013 6:27:40 AM

I'm not sure if Amazon.com ships to the UK. But you can just try all of the others until one works.

None of them work unfortunately maybe we can try another item?

Sure, go ahead


Can you find it for me + I'll be buy & building the PC on Christmas..
October 6, 2013 7:10:45 AM

Just go onto Amazon.com and search for one of the parts suggested, not the CPU as we already tried that one.

Thats what I was doing but the only reason why I told you because you know about the things I don't might just go and purchase something which looks the same but the wrong part.. so please if you don't mind do it:) 
October 6, 2013 7:17:22 AM

Sorry, but I don't have time to trawl through Amazon looking for your parts, I'm actually working right now. It's simple really, just copy and paste the item that was said earlier, search for it and click on the one that matches. Then do what you did earlier, bring up the list of people selling it and try and buy it through them. If you still can't find something then I'll try and help you later :)

Cool, that should be good then. Might take a while to arrive though, but that shouldn't be a problem if your getting your system at christmas.

Feel free to ask any questions when it comes to build time, but apart from that you should probably close this thread by clicking something like set as solution on the post when I first mentioned the build.

Later!
