You in the US?

www.pricegrabber.com

and

newegg.com (since pricegrabber doesnt always list newegg for some reason)

If a frys electronics is near by look at their advertised specials.

newegg isn't generally the cheapest, they can provide the best value, by way of having such a wide selection, but pricetag for pricetag on mainstream items like say, a 7 series graphics card, newegg is usually acouple dollars more.

newegg has good prices and once in a while you can catch a really good break on parts when theyre on sale

they also have really fast shipping too.....

zipzoomfly has free shipping but the cost of shipping is most likely incorporated into the price because most of the time theyre a couple bucks more than newegg...sometimes

either or you cant go wrong

I personally use ZZF because Newegg charges tax in NJ. D*** their warehouse here. On heavier items like cases, ZZF really comes in handy if they carry the item due to the free shipping.

On a sidenote, what is up with EVERYTHING on ZZF being out-of-stock??

I just go to this one local store, they have good prices and + no shipping costs or risk of it taking a few weeks - months to get here.

If u want u could just look in your area for some computer stores and u might find something good?
