Newegg... build 3 WHOLE PC's with parts from NewEgg over past 3-4 years.... Only had ONE product arrive DOA... it was a power supply. NewEgg paid to ship it back, and got me a new one within 5 days.

Also, the BASIC shipping on Newegg has NEVER taken more than 2 days to get my products to me, and I am in Chicago. Mostly, it seems like their distrobution center's where my packages come from are on the east & west coast.

Haven't ever used TigerDirect or ZipZoomFly.. A co-worker that builds PC's uses ZipZoomFly, and he likes it.

I like zzf because they give free fedex shipping on nearly everything, and as we know, fedex PwNz UPS. Either one is a good choice though (Newegg or zipzoomfly, that is)

I've bought three things on newegg and all of them came really fast and they are great products at great prices. Plus they have really good customer service especially for RMA's. Go with newegg.
New build in progress, but this is what I got for now:
-AMD x2 5200+
-Asus M3A78-EM AM2+
-Buffalo 2x1gb ddr2 800
-Hitachi 250gb Sata HDD
-Antec Minuet Case w/ 350w psu
