I'm a geek without a paddle - I have no sources for tech gear here other than the mall.

So tell me, and it's pretty urgent right now, what are the best places to shop online for PC parts - good, but cheap, parts, cases, PSU's.. etc etc. Computer building research basically.


[Edit: I went with www.newegg.com in the end. Frys is apprently great, but their website sucks - so online ordering is a pain. It seems that Pricewatch is also good (though ugly), and I used it to search for stuff. Newegg came out on top most of the time so I switched to that. TigerDirect.com were pretty good, but newegg was better laid out and easier to search, plus a tiny bit better on price for some things (mostly because they had a better range - or I could at least find the other stuff).

Thanks Everyone! you rock]

man.. I wish I could help. There was a time, when I lived in California, that I did know the answer to this question, but time marches on and my memory becomes a wee timorous beastie. I mean there is the sort of obvious CompUSA, Computer City, PC World and other large stores owned by "the man". There used to be an awesome, if annoyingly understaffed computer superstore that Bry and I used to frequent when we lived in LA but I think it has completely folded, but I'll be damned if I can remember the name. There's lots of mail order places. I'll see if I can get elmofromok to help you out. He'd likely know.
