    Default Where does everyone buy their gaming rigs and/or parts?

    I figure I'm going to need a new computer to handle the graphics for Rift, so I'm just curious where y'all get your computers and parts.

    I'm investigating buying a pre-built as well as building my own...all options are on the table at this point.

    Mostly from NCIX.com, with some from A-Power.com, and occasionally something from NewEgg.ca. I am from Canada so depending on your location, those places will not be available.

    Ivory Computers. And no, it most likely doesn't exist near you and/or in your country.

    Newegg. I've been getting just about all my parts there for years. For my own family's computers, as well as all the other computers I build.

    Newegg, and sometimes Tigerdirect.

    It only ends once. Anything that happens before that is just progress.

    I get almost all my goodies from newegg.com unless it's something small like an external drive, then I go to BestBuy for the triple points and the rewards .
