Default buying a PC

does anyone know whether a PC bought in USA will work in UK? I'm thinking about the difference in power ie. 110v USA and 220v UK.

The power supply's would be an issue.

It would be better, if you live in the uk to just buy one there.

I'm visiting USA right now and someone wants to give me a PC. I thought that if the power supply is an issue then I could replace that power pack when I get to UK. Do you think that would work?

Um..I would think so. You would just have to replace the psu with a UK one and you should be good. Unless the UK stuff have different amounts of pins in the connectors than the US stuff.
