I want to build PC, I looked around, it comes to around $1900 if I was to buy
all parts and monitor on newegg. From what I hear there are better/cheaper places
on net where you can buy parts. Anyone has any suggestions?

Or is it better to buy all parts in one place and save on shipping? How
would you do it?

Personally? if I was in the USA.. just get all the parts from newegg... save hastles of this part coming from there and being late or not there... If you can deal with just one dealer it should be cheaper... $1900 with a monitor should buy you a pretty snazzy system...

Yeah newegg is one of the best places to get parts if you live outside of California, just get everything there if you can, can't really go wrong. I found it cheaper to use TigerDirect than pay tax since I live in CA. Also maybe for the monitor and case, check out zipzoomfly.com because they'll even give you free shipping on those items. Their selection probably isn't the greatest but if they have what you're planning on getting from newegg it could be worthwhile.

How's the shipping? I'm probably gonna get some stuff from them in a few months.

Zip Zoom Fly and Tiger Direct are the other two sites that I really trust in the US.

For Canada: Try TigerDirect Canada and NCIX (if you live in Vancouver, you wont have to pay shipping since NCIX have shops there)

For US: Try Newegg and TigerDirect

Depending on where you live, if you live in Alaska like me, use Tigerdirect.com
