Hello. I was just trying to buy my self a new computer recently at Tiger Direct.com. I’m sure you all have herd of that site before. But I came in to some trouble with it. When I was ordering they could not verify the debit card I was using. Now I might just do a money order and get it all done that way. But I had to cancel my order witch kinda sucked. I was wondering if any one else knew of other sites that I could get these parts from. It might be just me but I think that Tiger Directs princes have gone up in the last month.

But if you guys could point me in a good direction that would be great. hehe and its kinda good that I had to cancel my order because I had forgotten to purchase a Video Card and a CPU fan, of all things lol.

Dude, www.pricewatch.com, it is the best site for finding cheap parts. Tiger Direct is listed in there but it is one of the more cheaper ones. Some sites would be www.portatech.com www.newegg.com www.buyxg.com The best experience i have had would be with the first two. What ever you do, do not buy from www.ewiz.com, they nearly blew up my computer by "accidently" sending a refurbished water cooler (My motherboard was on fire)

Yeah, I ALWAYS recommend pricewatch as well. And, uh, if it burst into flames, it didn't NEARLY explode, did it?

It's just a listing of multiple sites. Each one will have different policies.
