Always shop on Newegg. Then once you want something, compare Newegg's prices with other hardware websites, then go with the best deal. Newegg might not always have the best prices, but they by far have the best website.

My thought exactly!

I now use PriceGrabber to find the best prices (incl. shipping) for almost everything I order.

PriceGrabber is nice, I have been using it a good bit myself lately. But I still look on Newegg first, just because the site has so much information. If I find something I want, then I go to PriceGrabber.

I tried to use pricegrabber and it didnt even show newegg with a thermaltake Sonata with a rebate. It just showed one for 80 bucks from newegg. When the one with rebate is 55.

Sometimes PriceGrabber works and sometimes it doesn't. And sometimes it won't be updated with the site's prices. But it's still an effective way to price browse in most cases. If you see sites missing from the list that should have the item, go check them out yourself.
