NewEgg has a totally outrageous inventory... if they ain't got it, it probably ain't available.

That, and their site is so easy to navigate that finding what you need is relatively simple.

Their prices ain't bad, either. But shipping can suck. Plus, I am in the same boat as GoodNews101 with state taxes.

Like Shannon said, the customer reveiws are very helpfull.
Newegg most likely plants customer reviews and filters out what they don't want people to know

Possibly, by would they have put or allow the bad reviews on certain products?
