    Too good to be true?

    http://www.ewlink.co.uk/index.asp?fu...productid=6332

    AMD Phenom II BE 550 - £54.04!

    I can't find any bad reviews on the net for them, what do you think?

    Take advantage of their price matching and go with someone you "know"?

    Tells us that this is a trading name of EKM Systems who appear to be a web design company. Had a look at street view for the address but doesn't tell us much. It's a long street in an industrial park.
    Society's to blame,
    Or possibly Atari.

    That doesn't quite match up with their details;

    http://www.ewlink.co.uk/terms.asp

    This Web Site, ewlink.co.uk, is operated by Electronics Warehouse Ltd
    Electronics Warehouse,
    Sandness Industrial Estate,
    Sandness,
    ZE2 9PL

    I'm guessing that's the address of the company who maintain the site rather than the company itself.

    What I thought Phage, its in the middle of nowhere! But their Amazon page seems very popular, I think they are imported or someone manages the website.
