i usually use tigerdirect.com but does anyone have anything better?
Until you have an RMA.
Iv had 2 RMA's that they where great about
ordered about 4 PC's worth of hardware from them so far, had a few RMA's...everything went smooth.
dumpster diving > *
u'd be surprised what stuff you find behind an IT store or government building!
1700+ DUT3C that is good for 2.1GHz on air Found that last week
I really like a couple of small local shops. Most of the time their prices are close to what I find online (ncix.com), and their service is very good. It's really nice to go in and talk to a sales person who actually knows their shit and is respectful and friendly.
They are hard to come by. everywhere here is 30-60 bucks more then online
Yeah, you gotta search for them. Harder in the US I'd imagine as well, since newegg has such great prices (and doesn't ship to Canada).
best i got is best buy and they don't know crap and the geek squad there are a bunch or arrogant fags. why did circuit city go under
www.monarchcomputers.com is good for parts
www.svc.com is good for cases/cooling so is www.coolerguys.com and www.frozencpu.com
LianLi cases: www.silverpcs.com
of course newegg/chief value (they are one and the same)
Chain stores FTL. You gotta look for the little, hole-in-the-wall, mom-and-pop, chinese immigrant-owned places.
Newegg is my top choice. top notch service and great prices. I dont care if i save 5-10% here or there. Newegg is worth it.
I buy from newegg, zipzoomfly.
I had to issue an rma on a motherboard (zipzoomfly) after it shorted 3 psu's(newegg)
I would rather do 3 newegg rma vs. 1 zipzoomfly rma.
I fucking hate those goddamn bastards. Will NEVER do business with them again.
Cliffs: I put in an order, they told me it was being processed. More than a month later, I call again to ask what's up with my order since I haven't received it. After calling about 5 times, they tell me that it's mysteriously been cancelled. I asked for a discount because of all the hassle they'd put me through, and they basically were bastards about the whole thing. So a while later, I find a really good price on something there and decide to give them another chance. When I order it, they tell me they need payment in advance (as opposed to COD like they normally do) because it says so on my account. I told them to go fuck themselves at that point.
Like everyone else says i <3 newegg.com
I just ordered some stuff from Newegg. Might be my last time. NewEgg + FedEx + teh win. Now Newegg + UPS = teh lose. Fedex would rape the road for me to get my stuff at least a day early. But UPS shipping is sluggish.
I ordered some stuff from Newegg this morning and opted to pay more for FedEx shipping. I have no doubts it'll be here by Thursday.
UPS = teh lose in general.
also I have found that mwave.com is good, sometimes they have better prices than newegg.com, I am in the process of RMAing something I got from them right now
Yeah, I imagine they're a good place to go if you can go to the actual store. The prices are tough to beat.
