Default Best place to shop?

What would be the cheapest computer part site for high priced parts like a 7800 GTX? Would I be better off just bidding on them on ebay?

and then check a few of those sites at resellerratings.com and see that you could get an STD just from viewing their page. Stick with the more popular and better rated sites, obviously.

Since Rich's location isn't noted, it is possible that he is not in the US. That thread has a lot of non-US sites on it.

Yes, many listed are questionable, but let the buyer beware...
