Cheap Stuff.

Anybody know any good online shops with cheap hardware, that's still good hardware, delivers in a reasonable amount of time, has a good rep and will ship overseas if necessary?

What I'm looking for:

Some RAM ( alot actually)
A mother board w/sound, vid, and lan capabilities for an AMD 64bit Athlon
A couple of good hard drives
A 3Ghz 32bit socket A processor
A good multi layer dvd burner

The rest I can sort out reasonably from here. I am just wondering what everyone else uses.

I usually do a google search or search some of the sites like pricewatch.com for exactly what I am looking for. You can get lists sorted by price. I then take the places with the best prices and do a little investigating as to how reputable they are and I really haven't had any problem. I have dealt a lot with amazon.com (probably my favorite), newegg.com, tigerdirect.com, etc. I have also bought used RAM from an individual via amazon.com with good results and at a steal of a price. I don't know how any of those deal with overseas shipping though. Also, I just purchased another NEC multilayer DVD burner from NewEgg for $29 bucks:

This is the model:
NEC 7170A-0B RAM

I have 2 dual layer NEC burners now and I will never buy anything else (thanks to Tux for the tip).

do you reckon there's nowhere in england that will sell you those things?

i don't know if there is, since any old hardware usually does me but i would be surprised if it's cheaper to have kit shipped from the US than to buy it in england.

I found a good set of 1Gb 184 pin DDR 2700 @ 333MHz for 41.13 w/VAT.

and it's UK. I just wanted to see what everyone else uses. You never know, someone might have a nice secret hardware resource that's just cheap as it can possibly get. PC World delivers but can tend to be on the pricey side (but it is same day delivery if they have it in stock). It never hurts to ask.
