DIY computer resources

So some of you have seen my recent posts on building a new PC. I was wondering what websites people use. Right now I'm pretty much looking at NewEgg, TigerDirect, and FrozenCPU for everything.

If there are other websites people prefer I'd appreciate hearing about them.

Thanks in advance, Jerred.

Eh, call me a cheapo...I just go to Fry's and slam them with a MicroCenter ad and then they have to price match.

Was able to get my I7-930 for $200 at Fry's and they wanted around $300 for it.

And I love me some cheap korean ECS boards

I too tried that at the matlock location, those fucking pieces of shit denied the Microcenter ad (for the 930) because this location (fry's) was not in the same county as Microcenter. I hate the fuck out of fry's and never do business with them anymore anyway's. I enjoy going out to Microcenter, least you don't have to worry about merchandise being returned and put back on the shelves like shitole Fry's does.

And I had 0 luck with ECS but this was year's ago, least when i bought them at Fry's.
