Right now, I think the 1 pound is equal to 1.8 US. Not too sure though.

In the UK things tend to be more expensive than the US!

[£1 = $0.55]

Anyways computer components are more expensive over in Europe. Cheaper in US. Also you cannot play it on Ultra High. Ultra High requires a video card with 512mb of VRAM.
