Default Good trusted places to buy.

Although, Newegg has always been my main source of buying computer gear, They have been out of stock of something I've wanted for some time!

TigerDirect, Was my next choice however they not only have limited item's, They are over priced!

So, I was wondering some other good trusted company's to order off of online.
Some of which you guy's buy from.

Thank's.

Wow. Boohoo.

Not everyone that works at Newegg is going to be a computer nerd, or know what you're talking about. They are a RETAILER not a Manufacturer.

Yea that's true...they do have kind of sucky support but they took back my PCI-E card back a year or so ago without restocking fee when i was still learning and didn't know that there was a difference lol. Still though they're prices, returns, and shipping is excellent.

Funny, most people say the best thing about Newegg is their superior customer service. Ive never had anything but good experiences with them when ive had problems or questions (about their procedures, stock,etc - you cant expect them to know everything technical about the products, they dont MAKE them).
