I have got a lot of stuff from there but only if the price is right. I seem to be finding better deals at newegg these days. There are several online computer stores and a good idea to compare prices before you buy.

Thanks chris,

Its comforting to have a site like this to get help. I'm looking to either build a system,or just buy a bundled pkg. Seems if you build one yourself you get more bang for your buck.

I've dealt with Tiger Direct also and have been satisfied. Also with newegg as buildpro mentioned; they are very competitive and the service is good.

Never bought from them, but I know they've been around forever, which says something about them right there, I guess.

I've heard they have pretty a pretty sketchy record when it comes to rebates, but for cheap components they're fine. I've ordered parts several times. I think they sell Systemax PCs which are pretty decent.

Unless you're talking about a high end or specialized system, I think these days you're hard pressed to build a system for cheaper than you can buy a Dell, if you watch for specials and use coupons.

I'd go for quality and pride you get from building it yourself over any company, I think you made a wise choose there. I choose my products very carefully as well, opting to purchase from the country in which I live.

As far as TigerDirect goes, I could not believe the time it took my parts to get here. I ordered it on a Thursday evening and received it Saturday morning. Of course I only live less than 50 miles from their warehouse, but still yet I was impressed. I figured it would at least go several hundred miles out of its way first.
