Just wondering - anyone bought anything from www overclockers.co.uk?  Sort of considering a graphics card from them?

Any thoughts?

Used to buy from overclockers.co.uk all the time when I lived in the UK. Didn't realise they now shipped worldwide, although by the time you add freight charges, will you be saving much?

Depends what it is really, with comparing to the same things on Pricespy, only some are actually cheaper. A graphics card is GBP15 to send over so not nearly as bad as I would have thought.

Eg: Point Of View 8600GTS 256Mb GDDR3 with MotoGP game comes to NZ$174, same card no game is NZ$329 from here, the same BFG overclocked is NZ$185 from them, and over NZ$440 here.

Only thing I would really be worried about is the warranty, would it be return to base??

Warranty can be an issue, as can paying any Duties/Tax on it when it comes into the country. You may be lucky and not have to pay, otherwise you will have to pay GST and other associated charges when it comes in.

Called Customs, there's no duty to pay on hardware, but there is GST if it totals more than $50 revenue for them, so on the $174 it shouldn't have any...

Think I'm too chicken anyway because of the warranty - just... in.... case....

With the prices less than 1/2 of what they cost in NZ, you can purchase two cards and still save money. that way if you have to send one back you have a card to use. And of course you could run them in SLI etc

snonoz - Beginning to wish I hadn't seen your post Wink. My credit card has been relatively unused in the PC department since moving here, which may now change.

Check out their deals on their 'This Week Only' and 'Sale' sections.

My credit card is thoroughly worn out, and still suffering from Xmas!

I have one POV graphics card in the cart, but if I add anything else (even a scrawney little RAM) it says overweight - so not too sure if they would ship too much this far...

Still temped by that card though.... even with the possible warranty issues ;P
