The Hardware Shopping MegaThread
 
This topic is being created to stop the constant questions about which site to use for buying products. We will list sites by Country.

*NOTE*

If this thread gets out of hand AT ALL, meaning that someone posts a site and someone else later comes by and gives them any kind of flak saying the site is junk, there will be instant Infractions given. No pleas, no questions nothing. The first sign of any kind of arguement and all parties involved get infractions. This is the ONE AND ONLY WARNING.

This topic is for informative purposes. It is to help guide people to sites to use for buying parts. It will be edited and sites for other countries added once they are suggested. No site will be bashed for the sheer sake of it. A site will be added once it has been researched.

So please when posting make sure to give the Country you are from or posting for and list the name of the site and a link. Thank you.

Here's the UK sites I usually use, I think that's the main ones, trying to think of a few more.

-
UK
Scan | Ebuyer | Dabs | Aria PC | Overclockers UK | Misco

There is one other, which is Play.com, however they outrageously expensive for any powerful hardware and are only good for cheap items such as card readers, optical drives and rewriteable media as a result of their free shipping on everything. I shall leave it up to you Mak to decide whether to include it.
As an example, their cheapest GTX260 is 30 more (about $50) than the exact same model at Scan.

Edit: Added Misco.

Good idea mak

Canadian sites

NCIX
Newegg

TigerDirect

I can't think of anymore right now, but those are the best (tiger direct being the least best, the shipping is kinda of hefty and they are a bit over priced compared to the other sites i listed.
