So if I click the link I get the US site which looks like a bad deal once you convert to NZD, and ship its about $315 .. if NZ customs get you for GST then its more like $360 .. and locally they are about $340

 

But if I manually search .co.uk its only ~$260 which is crazy impressive .. but only for Prime members

When I click on the link OP posted, it takes me to amazon.com, not uk and the price is US $220.00 inc shipping.

 

Almost worth it. If I actually need a new computer.

If you copy and paste then it'll take you to the UK site; £136. I think it'll drop to £113 when you buy it since you don't need to pay UK VAT. I don't have Prime so I can't check!

127.42 pounds / 250.65 NZ dollars incl cheap postage excl VAT with Prime apparently. You can always (I think) join Prime and cancel again within 30 days. I have zero need for one.

Damm this is tempting. Especially when you take into account the motherboard costs.
