I was just wondering what the best places to look for deals on general computer stuff (hard drives, flash memory, cables, etc..) What are the places you look for great prices?

Here's my list:
General Stuff
Newegg.com
Zipzoomfly.com
MacMall.com

Memory:
Datamem.com (Guaranteed Mac compatibility)

Cables:
Monoprice.com

I'm actually looking for an external hard drive and wanted to hear some suggestions as to where else to look.

Can't forget fastmac.com for some harder to find parts, upgrades and replacements. Crucial.com has mac-guaranteed memory too, and is getting closer to DataMem on price (but Newegg usually beats them both).

I should mention that I've purchased three macs from Amazon basically for the price (read: rebate) offered.

Newegg and Monoprice have pretty much everything I need.

But sometimes Amazon and eBay come in handy too.

Amazon's Prime shipping (2nd day UPS for free, or overnight for $3.99) has made an addict out of me (and everyone else in my house).

Newegg is great, but if I can I usually use TigerDirect since NewEgg has to pay tax in NJ.

Yikes. I think I've read too many horror stories to ever buy from TigerDirect.
really? i'm not a big online buyer, but the several times i've bought from tigerdirect i've had absolutely no problems! i'm actually waiting on some stuff that should be getting here anytime soon that i ordered on friday!

May need to add JR.com to the list, just bought a 750GB triple interface Maxtor external HDD for $199. It's scheduled for delivery tomorrow, we'll see if there are any issues.

Received my HDD from JR.com today (Wednesday) after ordering Sunday night. This is with standard shipping, so I was pretty impressed with the speed. I'd buy from them again.

Another vote for Newegg and Crucial. I have made many purchases from both, and never had an issue with either.

I have also made a lot of purchases from Amazon, when the seller is actually Amazon. The prime shipping I have saves some bucks.
