Ebuyer are actually pretty good these days. They did have some problems with Customer Service a while back, but it's been a lot better recently (for me at least)

ebuyer, overclockers.co.uyk and scan.co.uk are my main ones for parts, all 3 are extremly cheap depending on what you want.

Overclockers are best for GPU's, scan do lots of heatsinks wc'ing etc... ebuyer cheap on other things like keyboards, usually CPU's.

Service is excellent the staff arent 2 intelligent but the only problem we've ever had is them noting an address down wrong which delayed my stuff for ages, but that doesnt mean they arent kind they sorted it out straight away after we figured out the problem

Just check all the sites mate, best way forward. www.froogle.co.uk is good for doing this. Remember to check ebay too, both auctions and "buy it now" sales
