upgradecenterinc.com worked fine for me, the only problem was that I ordered the wrong part, so i had to return it which they handled nicely.

I hear Tiger Direct is a pain for returns.

Check out www.directron.com for some good deals.

But since you know about www.newegg.com , I assume you are very happy with them, and you can't get much better than them.

I've done stuff with newegg and they were very good. I haven't delt with tiger direct but most big companies are respectable.

www.allstarshop.com is a great place, i know people who are very happy with stuff. Also check out dell and HP and gateway, they carry peripherals and with their buying power make very good prices from time to time.

I have friends who bought stuff there and were happy. The one all my friends are using right now is www.mwave.com. They all have had great luck with them.

An obvious site is pricewatch.com Not a store but it has current costs for all sorts of stuff. Very useful site.
