  • Best site for Computer parts shopping

    Okay for those like me that like to shop for computer parts, or for those that want an easier time. I have found the best site for shopping and keeping track of what you are looking for. The site lets you customize you search by region. So if you live in Australia, Britain, USA, Canada, Germany, Spain, Italy, or New Zealand it will search based on what region you set it at. If you become a member of the site (free) it lets you save builds and sends you price changes if you want. I love it because I live in Canada and always get searches that hit American sites that do not deliver to Canada. The searches hit a bunch of sites and brings you the best price, it also shows deliver charge and mail in rebates. Take a look at the site as the different options and tweaks you can do are numerous.

    P.S. I have no connection to this site or any of the sites this site connects to. I am just a fan.

    I too use that site extensively. However, I usually buy everything from a single source (NewEgg usually) if I can. Makes refunds/returns/replacements less of a headache. Building for others, I usually ask if they have any store preferences.

      Yeah, I find the historical price data especially useful / informative, particularly when you are not in a hurry and just waiting and watching for a "good deal." Then you know what a "good deal" actually is when it comes up, and can have more confidence in pulling the trigger.

        I used to buy things from Amazon. I will try this site once as you have recommended.

          I use Newegg exclusively unless I need a really good deal, than I go to eBay.

            I noticed Newegg has been doing the "mark up high, sell slightly lower than standard" sales practice on a few deals lately. I am not sure I like that.

              They've been doing that since last year Siege. Thankfully it's not on every item, just some.

                Luckily, we have resources like pcpartpicker (and others) to give us a higher quality of information. Man, I love the internet! :)

                    Use HoverHound at Newegg to see the historical price fluctuations there and at Amazon, Tiger Direct and NCIX.

                    If you have American Express you can get ShopRunner for free, which provides free two-day shipping.
