LOL, sneaky cunt, nice plan
But like i said in the other post, it shouldnt take more than 7 days to get to you, and ive sent chips to the US that have arrived within 3days of posting. Also when i sent them (sent 3 at once all in same package) it cost me £2.70, that was including an anti-static bag for them each and padded envalope. So the guy at that site shouldnt really be charging you much more than that, though he might get abit greedy and want abit of extra profit, thats why i said he shouldnt really charge more than £4.
EDIT: Oh yeah, just email and ask him though, i dont see why he wouldnt ship the the US, and if he wont and you really want one and dont want to have to wait weeks in queues behind pre-order people, i could get it for you.
