an amazin place in the uk which sells stuff really cheap is:
http://www.pcnextday.co.uk

the stuff is really cheap but the only downside is that it doesn't have a very big selection on things like motherboards. other than that its an amazing site.

For Canadians:

http://www.oemexpress.com (best store I've ever come across)

http://www.vibecomputers.com (this site varies on prices, but you may find a good deal)

http://www.computers-canada.com (Like a Canadian version of pricewatch.com)

In the UK, no one has mentioned

http://www.stak.com

For components they are very cheap, very fast delivery (usually next day) and they do lunchtime specials (12pm - 2pm) and Sunday specials, which can be a fantastic bargain if they happen to include the item you need.

Returns are also no problem - although when I sent a faulty hard drive back, they sent it back to the manufacturer for testing, which meant it took about three weeks before I received the replacement - but there was no problem to get them to sort it.

Highly recommended.

In the UK, I buy a lot of components from Aria;
www.aria.co.uk

I've done a quick comparison with some of the other stores mentioned, and I still think they're about the cheapest.
Only downside is they do make you pay for tech support phone calls... but they answer emails really quickly.

Peace for its people,
Love in our lives,
Delight in the good,
Forgiveness for past wrongs,
And from now on a new start.
