Where to find the best deals for parts
I was wondering if anyone knew where to find the best deals for computer parts? I see a lot of good deals a month after they were going on. I am planning on getting a 2500k CPU and P67 motherboard in the next month, and want to know where to look out for the best deals.
Most people have their favorite e-tailer/retailers. If you already have some, subscribe to their newsletters. If you don't, I've been happy with newegg, superbiiz, SVC, buy.com, and even Amazon for some things. They have all delivered the stuff I've ordered as promised and within the times promised. Please note that if your credit card mailing and shipping addresses are different, you can expect delays.
Generally, Newegg has the best prices, but sometimes you can get things a little cheaper on Amazon since they have a lot of items with free shipping (you save a TON on shipping a case there).
Like treefrog07 said, I subscribe to Newegg's newsletter and Shell Shocker Deals (3 every day). The chance that what you're looking for to go on sale any given day is pretty small, but they have good sales on individual parts every so often and around major holidays. For example, Newegg just had a bit RAM sale a few weeks ago where desktop memory was 15% off.
I tend to shy away from Tigerdirect, since they have awful prices, pretty poor customer service, and don't have a lot of up-to-date stuff.
