newegg.com has very good prices.

zipzoomfly.com sometimes has the best prices, but they always have some type of free shipping promo with most items....

newegg and zipzoomfly are great. I've also had good experiences with xoxide.com. go to resellerratings.com and you can check out whether a place is good.
I\'m happy with it.

^^ i checked some of those sites in that link. I wouldn't even consider browsing some of them let alone buy from them. That's why you always have to check for yourself.

I\'m happy with it.
