Online, it's newegg.com all the time.

Brick and mortar store, it's DIT Corp or nothing for me, the only computer store I have ever found that doesn't rip you off too much and who know what they are doing.

God. Does newegg really have to advertise themselves in my post?!
No, that's how the vB software handles links.

NewEgg is top-notch and has the best selection for most things. I also use ZipZoomFly, Buy.com, Directron, Mwave, as well as some specialty sites. I just ordered a new graphics card from ZZF because of their free shipping and because NewEgg charges taxes in my state (TN, NJ, CA).

If you're in the US, then definitely newegg. They just offer such a great service, and some of the best prices around. I like ZipZoomFly, because of their free shipping. Although shipping takes a little longer than, newegg's 3-day select.

Tigerdirect.com

I know people don't like them, but they do have good deals once in a while.
