www.pricewatch.com is the best kept secret around i think. Priceline got William Shatner, and pricewatch got the real deal. I also agree, watch for some of the ridiculously low priced merchants....also someone here recently made a big stink about www.paragon.com..so id say avoid them if for no other reason than, there are plenty of other places-so one big huge complaint is good enough for me hehe.
Axion was a place i found thru priceline, and theyve done fine by me.
If yout thinkin of RAM, id definately say goto: www.crucial.com AKA Micron. Youll see alot of places advertise Micron RAM, but that just means they are using the micron/crucial chips...lord only knows who soldered them on the sticks..my fear is its some 16 yr old doing it in his garage. For RAM, you want reliability as well as price, crucial is the best on both id say.
Otherwise, enjoy shopping thru pricewatch. Also to compare prices, you can always goto buy.com and see what the medium price is. They are better than your local Comp USA (well almost anything is) but there are often reputable stores with slightly better prices.
Another place ive recently noted is www.accubyte.com They had some great prices on IBM 75 GXPs, and supposedly give an extra discount if you mention pricewatch.com.
Enjoy shoppin around~! I am as well~!
