    I'm fairly sure you qualify for the free shipping offer on these boards so the X2 250 might be a good use for the £12.50.

    No prob: check at the top of the forum page and you should see a link marked 'free shipping for loyal forum members'. That page has the details of eligibility and how to claim.

    That saves you £12.50 ex vat. The Athlon X2 250 is £10 more expensive than the 245 you're currently specifying. Granted it's only 100MHz more, but better spent on you than couriers...
