Hello there.

I am looking to build a computer and been recommended these parts:

So I was wanting to know what's the best place to get them from for the best price?

If you could recommend me some sites to check out I would be very grateful.

Make that list on Pricespy. Then you can get it to tell you which store has all the parts in stock and who is the cheapest.

But yea some good ones are Computer Lounge (best support but not always cheapest), AlphaCity (cheap not much support), PC Online Shop (cheap, not much support).

I personally find myself getting stuff from Alphacity most of the time. Never had a problem. Only minor annoyance is no credit card payments.

Computer Lounge and Paradigm PC's are my go to stores.

They usually stock all the parts I need, have good support and are reasonably priced (usually they are one of the cheaper stores compared to someone like Playtech or MightyApe).

I generally shop around.  I've used Just Laptops for drives, TasTech for drives and other components. PB Tech — I know there was a negative thread here recently, but I've never had problems.   Or just browse Trademe for a good price from someone with good feedback.

AlphaCity usually are the cheapest. I found Elive to have excellent customer service, but PriceSpy tends to determine where I buy

Computer Lounge.
