Computer Parts

I've recently been looking at upgrading my computer and have been looking at some online computer shops. I'm just wondering if anyone knows of any other reasonable places to look at.

I've tried the following so far which all look pretty good.
Scan.co.uk
Overclockers.co.uk
Ebuyer.com

I'd be happy to hear of any other places to visit.

Thanks.

www.dabs.co.uk
www.aria.co.uk
www.kustompcs.co.uk

Personally I wouldn't give Overclockers the time of day, I've met their director in person and he's possibily the most obnoxious person I've ever met. Then again, benefit of the doubt, I could have caught him on a bad day..... (I judge companies on how they behave when things don't go to plan, dabs is very good here).

Most shops are OK if things don't go wrong and from that point of view (i.e. when things do go wrong) I found Scan one of the best - have a look at this forum for Scan and also this thread for a lot of other opinions.

www.novatech.co.uk hasn't been mentioned so far, I've never had any issues with OverClockers

Personally I only use ebuyer.com

Never had a problem with them and the stuff is always delivered pretty quick. That said, they did once send me 2 computer cases instead of one... And not once did they attempt to reclaim the 2nd - Not that I'm complaining Smiley
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

I use CCL in Bradford when possible - they have always been helpful and reliable.

I have an account at Insight and have found their service faultless.

I also buy stuff from Computer Orbit. These guys are actually local to me, so I have never needed to shop via their website and can't vouch for that, but their in-store service is great.

I'll have a look around those sites some more this evening.

Scan seem highly regarded on the forum you linked to holtlane (albeit some may be a little biased, ha ha) however they appear to have pretty reasonable prices in comparison to the others when I glanced through them.

Thanks again everyone.
