There is no "best" place, most places are the same however if you can get the squaretrade warranty or don't mind spending a little more and buy from newegg. Also i recommend reading through a lot of the thread(especially the OP) and becoming NOT a noob before buying. It is always best to know what you are doing before you do it. Lastly, a GTX680 should be fine but you may want to consider in the future moving to SLI to maintain 120fps in some games(depending on the requirements of games you play).
When i had 570s in SLI i was able to keep 60-80fps in most games and some would stay at 120fps. A GTX680 is pretty much equal or slightly better that 570s in SLI and equal to a GTX770 which i have both owned. When i had two GTX770s in SLI it pretty much took anything i could through at it except for VRAM. 1440p needs at least 2GB of VRAM and 3GB would be ideal.
I am not from the UK but newegg will ship there. If you go ebay then you may have to pay VAT but it will get there.
