UK friends, use newegg for price checks

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So i use PC partpicker UK and it is a very good website for me picking out parts i want for my dream builds or just to fulfil boredom.

 

But i am recently going to upgrade to a 1070 ti and my CPU as well to an I7, i noticed, along with the monitor i was going to be buying i was sitting at £1000...my current PC, removing software and peripherals was at £800 when i bought it...yeah expensive.

 

So i went onto Newegg, to see if they had a UK site, and they did (all my years i never knew they had a website based in the UK) and guess what... my products i was buying on PCpartpickers "lowest prices" was getting beaten by Newegg, some even by nearly £100. Mental. 

 

So i then thought "Ok so will they charge me like mad for shipping" No. £10 shipping for each item.... Holy ****

 

why haven't PCpartpicker introduced newegg to the website? If you live in the UK and have not yet tried newegg i would highly recommend checking their UK store out.

 

PS

Yes i know newegg are a great company and i knew they existed but i always thought it was American based, don't hate me

I love PcPP too, but its pricing for anything other than USD is terrible, and even with USD it will count listings that are sold out or no longer available often

Do you not need to pay import fees ?

I proceeded to checkout with a product to test and it appears not, not unless that detail comes up later on ie final stages 

I assume it is covered in shipping

Well I've bought things off gearbest from china before and I had to pay I think it was like £20 to get it from the post office which I guess is probably on gearbest for not being transparent about that?

Maybe it's the same here then, maybe i don't pay until i collect the package or something, if so then for products that are around £20 difference it isn't worth it but anything more than that i am still saving, thank you for bringing this up, i forgot about import fees

You'll most likely get import charges on the items, friend of mine bought parts from US for his car and had import charges appear months later

I don't know about import fees, but you also have to consider that Newegg UK does not include VAT (like Newegg US), whereas other sellers on PC Part-picker UK do include VAT in their price listed in their prices, so be careful when you see prices on newegg, as they may not be as cheap as you think, so that £100 cheaper may be just VAT not being accounted for.
