    circuitcity.com is fully online and is now selling products. According to the website they were just bought out by Systemax Inc.

    Except, I don't see CC opening any brick and mortar stores this time.

    There was oddness in the way something was handling the link (our servers? unknown), so the link was just altered to be "circuitcity.com". I'm sure we all can navigate there if we'd like. :)

    CompUSA doesn't operate any B&M stores any more either.

    TigerDirect is one of the worst places to buy equipment. I stopped using them when NewEgg became so popular, NewEgg has much better prices and customer service.

    Unless they have really great deals on the Circuit City website, I personally won't be shopping there. I also highly doubt it really matters, it is a win-win situation for Systemax as they can keep the site operational without much hassle.

    Sure they do. There are 23 of them, but most are in Florida.

    From the same company that tried to sue for the use "tiger" over OS X 10.4?......I'll pass. I'd look newegg or crucial first.

    Whoa, just noticed that. Makes me wonder why the f**k they still have stores.
