Stop, please. You're getting ripped off from those. With the exception of the odd good deal from Amazon and it's free shipping, and a few things off eBay.

I'll edit this post with a couple of our reputable sites, look between them for the best deal with their P&P.

The PC World/Curry's/Dixon's group is okay for the odd TV or Dyson deal, but PC parts wise, they're a rip off, the average consumer will go to them 'cos they're a large name, modders & builders know better. Just so you know.

EDIT:

These are the three main sites:

http://www.scan.co.uk
http://www.aria.co.uk/
http://www.overclockers.co.uk/

The others I use for the odd good deal, if their price is lower than the three main competitors are:

http://overclock.co.uk/ (Not to be confused with Overclockers)
http://ginger6.co.uk/
http://www.comeuro.net/webshop/ (The website is a bit sluggish, but I've had some brilliant deals from this place, they were an exceptional find)

[EDIT2:]

I'm curious, do you have plans on upgrading to some of the Phenom II lineup, now they've shot down in price, in the near future?
Are you happy with what you've got and have zero plans to upgrade to a new Intel/AMD Rig in the near future?

If you're thinking of maybe getting a Phenom II at the most, you can get yourself an AM2+ board with AM3 support (like mine, but get an Asus with good Phase).
They support both your processor and all the Phenom II, while using DDR2 RAM, so you can run your chip, and then pick up a 955 for 83 quid (or less, depending how far down the line) at some point, and OC that to 3.8-4GHz to run whatever you're playing a bit better for longer.

I'm thinking of long-term savings is all, but I dunno any upgrade plans you have, if any.
