Why not just get it online @ NewEgg.com or TigerDirect.com ?

I hate to go to stores because they never have the higher grade hardware I want.

I don't know of any stores besides a BestBuy that contains anything close to acceptable computer hardware..

Don't order from newegg.com if you live in NJ. You will have to pay tax and shipping. Go with zipzoomfly.com in that case; the prices are nearly identical, there is no tax, and the shipping is free on many items.

just for the record MicroCenter has really cheap prices, and high end stuff. Not always as cheap as egg or tiger but usually not more than a few dollars difference when you take into account shipping.
