I'd add, look <A HREF="http://www.resellerratings.com/" target="_new">here</A> for anyone you'd order from on line.

If it ain't broke, take it apart & see why not!

I mostly buy mine at Newegg, but sometimes at <b><A HREF="http://www.allstarshop.com/shop/shop.asp" target="_new"><font color=blue>Allstarshop</A></b></font color=blue> when they have what I want available and cheaper. Never have any problem with them.

For the love of all that is holy do <b>not</b> buy from Accubyte. They are in the midst of several Better Business Bureau claims and are the most infamous bait and switch artists!! They also charge enormous handling charges to compensate for their low list price. This is FACT.

Check <A HREF="http://www.resellerratings.com" target="_new">http://www.resellerratings.com&lt;/A> for a good company. There are plenty of good choices to find there.
Newegg is a decent company but they have some shady business practices that they use to boost thier ratings like bribing disgruntled customers to change thier rating of them. I know they did it with me, but I made out pretty sweet in the end (got my comp shipped overnight at no cost). The difference is that they honor thier claims and you are very safe buying from them.

If you are on the East US coast you may wanna try <A HREF="http://www.essencompu.com" target="_new">Essential Computers</A>. They also get good ratings, but process and ship much faster than Newegg. Thier prices are competetive and they (unlike Newegg) offer technical support.

That's the link I gave in my post if you'd of followed it, I guess, but maybe you didn't look. Oh well!

I order everything from Monarch Computers Systems.
They're usually priced within a dollar or two of
Newegg. If you order a motherboard combo, meaning
motherboard, cpu, and ram, they set it up and test
it at no additional cost. That keeps you from getting
a dead piece of hardware. I've ordered about 10
motherboard combos and other assorted parts, cases, and
such in the past couple years and have had 100%
satisfaction. <A HREF="http://www.monarchcomputer.com" target="_new">http://www.monarchcomputer.com&lt;/A>
