Cheap computer components

It has been suggested that it might be a good idea to have a sticky detailing where to buy cheap computer components. Should have done so a while ago I guess, would have stopped half the repetitive threads...

Anyway, please post links to companies that have good prices, anything off topic will be deleted. I'll start the ball rolling I guess

www.itdirect.ie
www.jaguarcompsys.ie
www.marx-computers.com
www.komplett.ie

I would put up links to trade places, but since most people are not in the trade, and cannot buy from them, it would be irrelevant.

I would like to recommend
Dawn Computers

They are based in Dublin, and will deliver anywhere in IRL.

The site is not fully functional yet, but I have seen a preview, and it looks good

They post to Ireland. Only have bought from them once. It took ages to get here, but this was apparently due to losing a HD full of emails and customer info etc.When I mailed again they were very apologetic, sent me an Athlon XP 1800+ instead of XP 1600 for the same price to avoid further delay (they ran out of 1600's), and sent it express mail, took basically 5/6 days to get here from LA. I have yet to return home and try it out, but I'm happy

Total cost - €171. (!!)

Apparently their prices are slightly higher than ocuk, but delivery is very reasonable. Worth a look, they seem to have all the latest gear. (Yes, I know they are based in Norway)

Update: I recieved a celeron 1.2ghz chip in 2 days, delivery was under 5 euro. Highly recommended

The CCL url is: http://www.cclcomputers.com/

I have used them too and they are better than Scan, although slightly worse range.
