I suspect shipping to the New Jersey, United States would be a ***** in price though.

And im also gonna go out on a limb and say that computer parts are all on a single standard as in no difference between the US and UK parts.

I think it is just the PSU that matters when it comes to that.

Yhea shiping that distance would be a reason to use the egg.

Yeah its not worth it to order from that store to the US. Because 1 british pound = 1.98 US dollars.

Oh I almost forgot to add my semi-final question (leaving it open just incase I make a stupid mistake hehe), That PSU will by all means be able to power my setup now that the links work and you know what I have put together.

Below Im finalizing everything I decided on so anyone with a similair budget can work with.

Case: 139.99
Newegg.com - Antec Nine Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Retail
Antec Nine Hundred, it fits all the components and the video card.

CPU: $186
Newegg.com - Intel Core 2 Duo E6420 Conroe 2.13GHz 4M shared L2 Cache LGA 775 Processor - Retail
Its got a 4mb cache for a small amount more money. I got it when looking for case recommendations on another forum.

DVD drive: $34
Newegg.com - Pioneer Beige 18X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 10X DVD+R DL 18X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 16X DVD-ROM 40X CD-R 32X CD-RW 40X CD-ROM 2MB Cache SATA 18X DVD±R DVD Burner - OEM

Why are you still going for that ram? This set of ram, as I said before is better for the money:
Newegg.com - G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail

Other than that. Everything else looks good.
