Newegg does not ship to the UK. You can try buying from overclockers.co.uk. Most anything on this page will do.
Thanks MaxC, Will go For The Corsair 2000 / 8-8-8-24 I think they look to be The best in the uk,Just held back a few weeks because of problems with early batch,s had faulty chips but the New ones shoud be ok.Just a bit concerned about the memory timings bieng 8-8-8-24 ? what do you think mate.andyR

CL8 @ 2GHz is hardly a cause for concern. CL7 or even 6 would be ideal but that's a lot to ask for. CL8 DDR3 2000 has the same access latency as CL4 DDR2 1000 and twice the bandwidth, hardly slow.
