I use www.overclockers.co.uk for buying computer components and cases etc, they usually have the cheapest prices around, but the ex VAT 17.5\Price is stated larger so be sure to add it on

www.supersava.co.uk is a very cheap one, though lack on their customer services, from what I have heard through reviews.

Just one for computers and notebooks, www.laptopsdirect.co.uk

I use froogle.co.uk alot to compare prices, and ebuyer.com nearly always comes out top, and they do great discounts.

Laptops Direct is amazing, they will also do custom builds and amazing value bundles, I got my IBM Lenovo Thinkpad from there for under £900! They also like most have free shipping.

Some Ebay shops are good, there are some good Dell resellers, although dell.com has free shipping.

http://www.techfever.co.uk/  isnt that good on some prices I must say

Well as i live in China,... I just have to walk about 20minutes and there is a computer street. They sell anything to everything.
Plus being in China where they make everything its all so cheap, cheaper than any website can ever be, as the Computer is where they also make the components rite in front of your eyes.

The best thing about that, if you want something made for your computer to your specifications, it can be done within about 30minutes depending on what you want done, or made!

So the best option is to come over to China with an empty Suitcase and have a look around!

There isnt anything of the like in the UK< I have heard of Akihabara, Known locally as ''Electric Town,'' the district, which covers more than a dozen city blocks, is a haven for people seeking out new and unusual electronics or who simply enjoy basking in the glow of millions of LEDs or trying out the latest video games... that sounds cool, but yer seeing as alot of computer components are manufactures there, it is logical tpo see they will go for cheap! Are they all reputable brands? Or generic lol, I get the impression of a market with buts of ram laying around  (Western viewpoint! ), but it is probably amazing, the trouble is, a flight to china would cost more than to get the components from a cheap for the UK, but outrageously priced in international standards typical UK store like overclokers.co.uk

I agree. I bought a monitor from Tiger Direct, RAM and two hard drives from Newegg, and I had no problems whatsoever.

Sorry to disagree with Sam but I find (other than special offers) Overclockers to be the most overpriced U.K etailer.

Personal recommendation is Scan.
