Or - it could be there are 100s of stores, but only a good 5 to 10 of them are used by enthusiasts.

Enthusiasts rarely go back to a store after a line of bad experiences.

il be buying my new RAM from ebuyer soonish

i have 2 slots on my motherboard .. one is taken up by a PC2 5400 1GB and i was thinking of buying and extra 1GB to make it 2GB but for an extra £20 i could get a 2GB RAM card which would make the whole thing 3GB .. is it worth paying an extra £20 for 3GB?

As far as I can tell, EBuyer tend to sell warehouse stock surplus etc from other larger companies for the most part.

Plus a lot of stuff tends to be generic asian imports.

(not being funny, But I got a USB 2.0 card imported from china, at less than a quarter of the price it would have cost from my local discount store.)

For me I use scan.co.uk ebuyer and overclockers.co.uk

ebuyer lacks stock for a lot of things and scan is great for like coolers and stuff.
