    Simple question - is Newegg US only?

    I've seen only a couple of references to it from UK/European posters here but there doesn't seem to be any way to register as a non-US user.

    It is US only but will ship to Puerto rico and AFPO people as well.
    Funnily enough I was just checking prices on there today and the two items I was looking at were almost identically priced in the Uk and USA (BUT) our prices then have to have VAT added. There are mailbox type companies who will set up a US shipping address for you who then ship the stuff on... but these services are not cheap and nor is the shipping. (But how much does a cpu weigh anyway?? or an OS?)

    Pretty much what I thought

    I was hoping to buy a new Shuttle SD39P2 - cheapest UK price is about 320, newegg sells for $389 (200).

  4. I was hoping to buy vista home premium, q6700 cpu, 8600gt/x lumix tz3 and 2gb 1066 ddr2 and to smuggle it all home in my bag under the expolsives

    Truth is tho vista home premium is the same price (excluding vat) from the cheapest sites (newegg ebuyer)

    the others tho are def cheaper and there is no duty to pay on still cameras (for now) tho if they get classed as video cameras then duty may become payable.

    American Visa ... here I come ... cheap flights please, now? via Iceland if possible

    Depending on what you want, the savings might pay for the flight tickets.

    I'm hoping to build a Shuttle SD39P2 with a quad 6600, 3x WD Raptors, 2GB RAM and a 8800GTS video card.

    Newegg retails for $1580 (790), the cheapest I can source the parts for in the UK is 1080 - a 290 ($580) difference.

    290 will buy you a direct transatlantic flight off season.
    Regards,
