:wink: Enjoy NewEgg while you can. They are like Walmart use to be before Walmart ran everyone else out of buisness. They may be Walmart for all I know. The prices are cheep, delivery is fast and returns go without question, just like Walmart used to be.

I just finished building my machine. I did a lot of price searching on pricewatch.com, and then looked at pricegrabber.com as well to compare prices. I actually got better prices at googlegear.com than at newegg.com, at least for the parts that I needed. A lot of other things are cheaper at newegg. But check out googlegear.com, they were very easy to deal with, everything was as it was discribed, brand new and factory sealed, and they gave me free 2nd day shipping. Had all my parts 3 days after clicking submit on my order!

Pricewatch is my choice for searching for the best price, but beware that you are reading everything they are advertising. I am currently trying to get a Motherboard/CPU combo and I want an 800 FSB, but the search chooses companies that are selling a mobo capable of 800 but a CPU that is 533 FSB. It's not them trying to scam, but more a limitation of the search engine. Overall you just can't beat it for finding good deals without doing a lot of surfing.

Googlegear is a great retail site that I purchased many pieces for my last system from.

buyxg is ok ... ive used them before .... the problem they have is in the shipping department and getting ahold of them ... if you are in a rush to get the components i would suggest newegg ... however if you don't mind waiting a bit and know EXACTLY what u want ... you can prolly save a few bucks at buyxg.com

btw don't pay for any higher shipping options or for express delivery ... it does not make a difference.

You don't have to put your address, However, if you put your city or state someone may see your request that lives near you and know a place that does have good prices. I live in NJ and there is a Computer Junk Yard where you can get some things cheap if you haggle good.
