although i agree it's still overprices remember the whole £840=$1680 doesn't apply well to computers. Components are more expensive in England in general, i've just spent roughly£840 on components, they'd probably only cost you $1200. Also with the dollar being stronger it's no longer £1=$2 sadly, its £1=$1.8....sad times.
