RESELLERRATINGS.COM is almost as good as Pricewatch in finding a low price but better in that you can check the rating of a online vendor.

I have been using newegg :lol: for about three years with not one single problem. Mwave is also great,as is directron. Googlegear is now called zipzoomfly.com (how stupid) but reliable. I am very loyal when I find a good vendor. I also give them good ratings and am sure to let them know about it. I have received a bit of free stuff using these tactics over the years.

If You ever have a problem with anything You buy from New Egg, You will be glad that You had bought from them. After fighting a HD I bought from them for 7 or 8 months I called them and was told to ship it back and they would supply a new drive. Service was great and pricing is right in with any ones prices A+ :D

I usually use www.pricewatch.com
I have also used Ebay to purchase a few items.... I hear horror stories, but myself I have never left unsatisfied. I always get exactly what I planned on getting... but you have to make sure you read fine print. Some people sell stuff thats just good for parts on ebay.

If your not going to build it

Post by dpnaugle »

I dont like to say it but Dell is very cheap. I, however, am having the best time ever researching all the components for my new system. I decided that I'm building my first PC. Im going to make it the entertainment center piece, i.e. music, games, movies, and work. A real monster for far less then a store bought comp.

Glad to see someone else that recommends Scan here in the UK, they really are good, cheaper than most too, I have been checking out CCL too, though I reckon Scan beat them on price overall.
