    please suggest a cheap online store in here

    hi i'm looking for some online stores to help me make my mind up for an upgrade.... either way i want a new mobo and cpu... i'm in the uk, but the stuff is quite expensive here in comparison... i'd like any suggestions anywhere but would like that they will ship overseas. post away

    btw i have a max budget of about $350 for mobo/cpu inc p&p make some suggestions of good overclocking combinations... i have 2 intel pc's now but one mobo/cpu is going so i dont have a preference as to intel or amd... just want a fast stable pc

    Well I can give you some links to places I like doing buisness with. May or may not be the cheapest, but good service to.

    Egghead.com
    Mwave.com
    2CoolTek.com Good place for heatsinks. These guys take payPal.

    Of course if you the absolute lowest prices you can always check out PriceWatch.com

    www.pricewatch.com is a collection of possibly the lowest vendors on the 'net. www.mwave.com is great too!

    mwave is a great site. However their cpu/motherboard combos are not always the best deal. If I'm ordering a whole system I still by the cpu and mobo from there to save on shipping(they have good deals on video cards and drives). But if you are just going to order cpu/mobo I'd probably look somewhere else.

    mwave.com has my vote. I am in Japan and have had VERY good luck with mwave. I get my parts on average in 6 days. Thier prices are very competitive also. Had to RMA a vid card a couple weeks ago....sent it to them on the 23rd of DEC...they had a new one in the mail to me by the 29th and I received it today (4th here, but still the 3rd in the states....5 days to get here!) Good luck!

    I agree on looking at pricewatch.com however, you might want to check the ratings of some of those businesses.
    http://www.resellerratings.com

    Places that have unbeatable prices sometimes have really bad ratings. (I'm not saying they are all accurate) You might have one person who got bad service knock the ratings down on purpose.
