Hey Guys.. My Desktop bit the dust last night..and i am looking to building my own again.. Now i used to do a bigger majority of my shopping on Newegg untill i discovered amazon.. Amazon just has proces that are a bit lower.. I am gonna have about $2500 that i will be able to build my next rig... So where do you guys shop at?
This is what i have got so far.. and i need to make sure everything is gonna work so far..

Newegg is more reliable and will likely have a wider selection of computer parts. Not to mention the customer service.

You should look and see if newegg does price matching and just get them to price match to amazon prices. I would definitely trust newegg more then I would amazon for computer parts.

But I'm in Canada so I use NCIX to buy all my stuff. NCIX will price match to any other canadian site, so I find what I want on NCIX, then I use Price Canada to find the lowest advertised price for the parts, out of all the canadian computer part retailers. Then I start a price match session in my cart on NCIX and input all the lowest prices and url's to verify. Then I complete my order and everything is good to go. I've never had a price match rejected by them. NCIX does have a U.S site but there doesn't seem to be a prce match button where it is on the canadian site. So I think your best bet would be to see if you can do a similar type thing with newegg.

DVL_IAC.. You make a good point about Price Matching.. I never thought of that... I will try and see if i can find anything on that.

Assman.. You are 100% right about customer service and stuff..
I am actually in a bind here.. i am trying to find a motherboard that will fit my new processor that i want.. Because after looking at the Motherboard specs.. i realized that the processor is not compatible.

Processor - AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition Thuban 3.2 GHz 6x512 KB L2 Cache Socket AM3 125W Six-Core Processor - Retail HDT90ZFBGRBOX

Motherboard - ASUS Crosshair IV Formula - AM3 - AMD 890FX - DDR3 - Republic of Gamers - ATX Motherboard (Compatible Processors: Sempron, Phenom II X3, Phenom II X2, Athlon II, Phenom II X4) and i want a X6 one

SO i am trying to find a board that is compatible and is CENSORED kicking with that processor.. If yall find one, just link it in here. TY
