a good place to start is
www.pricewatch.com
its a fairly comprehensive list of companies that buy in bulk and sell computer parts dirt cheap. You can find video cards $50 under the list price.

if you're talking about the stores on pricewatch, then yes. I have bought a lot of stuff from using price watch and I have never had a problem.

Don't forget some of those places are OEM, others are retail. I buy from NCIX.com, mainly because its Canadian (though i havent bought in a while). When I buy again, i'll shop around for the best places, not just one place. If you use something like pricematch, read policies and everything first, just to be safe.

yep i built my comp from various sites from pricewatch.com. I mostly use newegg. GameVE also seems to be a nice site. And like others have said most of the items are OEM meaning they come with all the same stuff in the box but its a white box like say dell would recieve to put in their Pc's. So far i havent had any problems with a pricewatch site.

Yeah, pricewatch.com is a great site, and very trustworthy. I have ordered lots of hardware from there and they all work fine and smoothly. Thanks.

I reccomend www.ncix.com they are very reliable, they have friendly service, and also a price match feature where they will match the price from another website. I buy all my components from them, and if you are buying a new computer with most of the compnents from them they just keep reducing the prices on all of the components.

Monarch computers has an automatic 6 month warranty on all mbs and combos just cause you bought it from them.

Monarch or Newegg.

I have alot of faith in both sites, I have ordered somewhere in the neighborhood of 15 seperate components from NewEgg and an entire system from Monarch. Also I recommend checking http://www.resellerratings.com/ before you purchase components online, especially if you plan on using Pricewatch.
