Newegg has MUCH better customer service, and the prices are often better.

Newegg has always delivered every single item (a lot) in three days or less with no problems. Tigerdirect can be cheap, but tend to be a real hassle in getting promised rebates.
3 different OS, so yep I\'m confused.

I either look at newegg or zipzoomfly. Tigerdirect is usually always better. Except if your building a computer for your parents or something Tigerdirect could be better because they give big rebates on lower end products.

...that statement was contradictory. Also, we have established that TigerDirect and rebates do NOT match...
