Default UK equivalent to Newegg

Hi.

I'm looking for the best online place, that's based in the UK - that deals with selling computer parts for building a system. Is there somewhere simular to new egg that i could buy my parts from?

thanks

Ok, that site looks pretty good. Thanks. Im a complete newb to building systems - was wondering when you buy a case, do you have the option of buying one with or without a PSU inside? and the same question - motherboards and cpu's built in and not built in?

You can buy some cases with PSUs but the PSU is worth spending money on and the PSUs that come with cases are often no good.
CPUs are mostly sold separately from motherboards, the exceptions to this are some low power computers and I have heard that some building kits have the CPU installed.
