View Full Version : Cheap PC component sites?
9th June 2002, 15:49
We're going to be building our next computer probably within the next 3-6 months, and have been looking around for some good sites. So far we've got:
Does anyone have any sites that they swear by? So far tigerdirect has been our best bet, although techbargains comes up with a good deal every now and then. Ideas?

Nope, not in the UK, that's why it says "Location: St. Louis"

I recommend infotech also. They are really a local store around here, but they ship online also. I buy almost all of my computer parts from them.

while i dont necessarialy swear by tigerdirect, i do reccomend them
i ordered some stuff from them and it came a good 3 days before i was expecting it, i think the reason being their warehouse is in illinois or something like that, indiana, maybe... and im in columbia, so st louis should be good too...
www.pricewatch.com is what most people would reccomend, but all they do is go through most of the sites on the net and report the lowest prices and link you to them, so pricewatch in itself is good but each individual site is that you have to take your chances on...

Thanks everyone, got a few more links now.
Yeah, pricewatch is one I forgot to list, but we have used it. Techbargains.com is similar, it's basically a bunch of good deals from Best Buy, Circuit City, Staples, etc. plus a lot of online stuff. Actually, right now they have a coupon to get a free frozen lemonade at Burger King, if anyone's interested ;)
