Question Is there a british ibuypower.com?

Just had a look on the ibuypower.com website, wow what machines! The only problem is, that its on pretty much the other side of the planet to me!
Do any of you know a British company that produce similar spec computers, at around the same sort of price?

Cheers guys.

maybe a mod should make a sticky or something listing the top UK and Canadian and/or European sites since it is easy to find an American based website selling computers/components.

Try the following:

www.dabs.com
www.savastore.com (and watford electronics, who is a division of savastore)
http://maxxpc.com/
www.eclipse-computers.com
http://www.simply.co.uk/

There are many more, but I'm too busy right now. Hope this helps
