    Any UK hardware sites take paypal

    I have £350 in my paypal account but it wont let me transfer it to my bank, so I'm planning on spending it on a new graphics card+mobo, but none of the sites(dabs, overclockers, komplett) take paypal.

    Any suggestions/links?

    I wouldn't buy anything from thecoolingshop.com using paypal. I tried it the other day. There checkout doesn't actually recognise orders by paypal as orders and just takes your money. Then you're supposed to go through a whole process to get your order. Which is actually impossible. I just spent two weeks messing about trying to get my money back.

    Misco are pretty good not tried the others personally.

    agreed, the coolingshop is great if you buy through there credit/debit card system, paypal seems to be a real hassle with them

    Yup and by the time I'd get intouch with anyone from customer service (week and a half). All the stick of what I wanted had gone. no watercooling for chuck.

    Coolercases take paypal for all your watercooling needs I found, hence I have all my stuff ready and waiting for me when I get back from Manchester.

    I'll look into them. Dont really need to pay by paypal, it was just case of them having what I wanted.

    The online form got me nowhere after over a week.

    Heh I didn't even get a response until I made of point of finding all the staffs email address's and CC'ing to all the ones who looked important.
