    Scan and eBuyer too selway. I use all 3, and I have used Komplett once, and they were good and very fast delivery.

    I like PCWorld tbh. Although I only use it to buy HDDs, heatsinks and games :p

    Pc world are around 25% mark up on all of their prices even generic items, i cannot see this move doing much for OCZ other than more mainstream consumer awareness.

    Good news for more retailers for OCZs stuff. Bad news if they mark it up that much.
