Great new places to shop
Always good to find some good reliable places to shop on the web. Here is my own poor man's bizrate.com:
* "Newegg.com":http://newegg.com. Very reliable shippers. All kinds of strange PC parts. Love their invoicing system, all the reciepts include serial number so super convenient for rebates, etc.
* "Zipzoomfly":http://zipzoomfly.com. Just as reliable. Usually Newegg and Zipzoomfly are with a few dollars of each other, but pays to check, one is not reliably cheaper than the other.
Here are some new vendors that I've tried which have worked out well:
* "GoGamer":http://gogamer.com. Usually $5 less than retail which is about what you can get for a game these days. Good shippers.
* "Carl's Electronics":http://electronickits.com. This is a super small retailer but very reliable. Has mainly electronic components and kits.
