    Zipzoomfly is us based and sometimes cheaper than the egg. Also, provantage.com, from what I have seen, is usually cheaper than the egg.

    MicroCenter is the best website to buy CPUs from, if you're in the US.

    I get most my stuff from ebuyer because of free shipping and great customer service, plus they're usually cheaper. Or I just go where ever's cheapest.

    I use bountii.com to try to find the cheapest place to buy, along with google products (is that what they call it?).

    I always prefer Amazon because if you have Prime, free 2 day shipping on pretty much everything sold by them (even heavy cases, etc.), overnight shipping 3.99/item, and overnight friday->saturday for 6.99/item...

    They have no restocking fee and pay return shipping :)

    Followed by Newegg & ZZF.

    Avoid buy.com like the plague (the lesson they taught me with the GTX 280 ordeal)...

    I use...

    Performance PCs for specialty parts like molex -> P4 connectors, 20 -> 24-pin main power connectors, fancy fans, etc.
    Systemax for laptop/notebook PCs.
    Amazon for software.
    Newegg for hardware/software.

    Occassionally I use Xoxide if Performance PCs doesn't carry what I need.


    "Pound Sterling"

    1 British pound = 1.4745 U.S. dollars
    1 Euro = 1.33 U.S. dollars
