    I typically get most of my parts at Newegg. Some items I obtain through the company I used to work for (small state-wide PC/Parts retailer & service place) though I can't recommend the public buy there since it would be too costly - I just still have my contacts and can get items at their cost. Unfortunately, despite 20ish locations and a lot of buying power, their cost is often right around Newegg retail anyways.

    Rarely I'll buy some bargain at another online retailer if I see a deal on slickdeals, passwird, spoofee, or somewhere like that.

    Newegg for most things, Monoprice for cables, and occasionally eBay.

    Fry's or Microcenter if I'm buying local, Newegg if I'm willing to wait

    It used to be newegg.com for everything but lately I have found better prices or better shipping speed and what not from amazon.com. Find what you want on newegg and see if amazon has it and you may find it for cheaper. Plus if you buy it from amazon and amazon has it for less within 30 days I think they will reimburse you for the difference.

    I used to get parts at a good price from a local PC clone builder or Dalco. I had problems with my first few Tiger Direct orders -- so I never went back. Then I shifted to Computer Geeks, and more recently Mwave.

    Cables & Kits is my one stop Cisco parts store if I don't want to shop eBay -- and my cabling store if I don't use Monoprice.

    NewEgg and TigerDirect -- best sites for deals, specials and SOMETIMES free offers IMO

    In addition to what everyone else has mentioned, pricegrabber.com as well.

    In addition, pricewatch.com

    They aggregate different websites for the cheapest price.

    I'm a big fan of Cables and Kits as well, especially since I can just drive down there and pick my stuff up :)

    Newegg is awesome. We also have a MicroCenter on the other side of town, I have gotten stuff from there before as well, when I have not wanted to wait for delivery.
