    All of the above and:

    Dabs if desperate (they have poor stock IMO)
    Maplin if even more desperate (they tend to stock older parts and low end stuff mostly)

    Overclockers.co.uk have supplied most of the parts for my rigs over the years, though some people here don't like their customer service (which i've never had trouble with tbh, though if some peeps here say they've had problems then maybe only use overclockers if you can't get the kit elsewhere).

    There's also dabs and OCUK (Overclockers.co.uk). Some people on this forum have had trouble with OCUK regarding RMAs. Personally i've had a good experience with ocuk on my 2 RMAs.

    EDIT: beaten to it :p

    Everyone's forgot aria.co.uk :(

    Love that place, amazing deals, quick delivery, the chances of actually talking to someone are slim though, all their stuff is automated, even the RMA system (had to return 2 things, was fine both times).

    Scan, Novatech and Ebuyer are my usual stores, and they all accept PayPal which makes life simple.

    OverclockersUK if you want to take the risk with RMA's. There stuff is cheap but I've had loads of problem's trying to RMA, late deliveries etc. RMA'd alot of things as well but I still buy from there.

    It usually isn't cheap, that's just it. Only occasionally stuff is cheap. Given their rubbish customer service, which I've been on the wrong end of several times now, I'm surprised they're still in business. :ohwell:

    Perhaps it's their website which is very easy and quick to browse? I look at it all the time for reference, but only buy from them if I have no choice, such as a clearance special I particularly want. I must admit to not having any problems with those.

    I do like their website it's nicely organised. I still use ocuk over ebuyer even though every time they get an RMA request from me they must be like wtf does he do to his stuff !!!

    I ALWAYS use http://geizhals.at/eu/ for checking prices. There are a lot of these websites in Europe that list all the online suppliers, and rank their prices and user ratings. I havent seen any for the UK that are good and reliable (ie actually give you the best price).

    Try http://geizhals.at/eu/. They sometimes have UK suppliers, or try a foreign supplier and ask for the UK postage costs. Might be cheaper.

    Bump! Op, can you compile all the websites in the first post? Otherwise, Moonpig can do it. I can summarise and you just edit your post. PM me.
