Where is a great place in Auckland to get a quote on new PC parts or build. PB Tech used to be really good but I don't find it that cheap these days.

Is there anyone cheap but reliable someone would recommend

What ludez said. Computer Lounge is the best store in NZ.

Information wants to be free. The Net interprets censorship as damage and routes around it.

Playtech is another good one. I only use Playtech and Computer Lounge because they are near damn the cheapest and have had excellent service from both of them for faulty products. I only go to other stores for stuff they don't stock.

I've used Ascent for years. I also use newegg, who ship many things to NZ. Their prices are cheap, their shipping variable.

+1 for Playtech - pricing pretty much matches other good stores.

I wouldn't bother spending any money. I have a old Playstation 2 you can have, let me know if you're keen?
