I need some advice on online computer shops. First I do not want to drop 200 - 400 bucks for a CPU and MB and not get the stuff then fight like hell to get back my money. I have been tempted with the good prices at some of these places. I had to restrained myself and I would like some opinions on these shops or any others that have products in stock. The sites I have checked out so far are, Monarch computers, Advanced computech, All star shop, Aviontech, Motherboard.com, Bunta and Directron.com. What I want to get is a Abit KT7A and a AMD 1 ghz 200 or 266 fsb processor and a sound blaster live value.
1. Check out pricewatch.com. Get a feeling for the prices.
2. Then check out resellerratings.com and get a feel for the vendors.
At the end of the day I have always ended up at <b>newegg.com</b>. I used to, before I knew about newegg, just buy from the cheapest place on pricewatch but I will tell you right now that it is not worth the few dollars you save.
Buy from as few vendors as possible to save on shipping costs.
