Hi Everyone...


Christmas is coming and I am planning to spend some money online for gifts.
I think many of us are, I just thought this would be a good topic. I have used
pricewatch.com but they seem to be going down the drain, the other big
ones like pricegrabber.com,nextag.com etc are all promoting whichever store pays them
the most, it is hard to really compare prices.

New startups are plenty such as www.PriceComparison.com, outsmarted.com, crazydeals.com etc..
but they lack the number of stores and products...

What do you all use?

Thanks

LinuxGUY
:rolleyes:

I use pricegrabber, I mostly do online shopping for computer parts and for that I use outpost.com (Fry's) and Newegg.com both which are awesome...BTW I'm getting myself a new computer this Christmas and here are the specs...

Samsung Black 52X32X52X16 DVD/CD-RW Combo Drive
ASPIRE X-Navigator Black/Silver ATX Mid-Tower
Kingston 1GB PC3200 400MHz 2-64x64 HyperX DDR
Samsung SyncMaster 997DF19" CRT Monitor
Western Digital 80GB 7200RPM SATA Hard Drive
GIGABYTE "GA-K8NS PRO" nForce3 250 Chipset
Logitech BLACK Optical Desktop PS/2 104keys
(and the best for last)..
Creative Labs Sound Blaster Audigy2 ZS GAMER
Logitech X-530 5.1 Black Speaker Sysem
AMD Athlon 64 3400+, 1MB L2 Cache, 64-bit Processor
ATI 256MB DDR Video Card with with RADEON X800 PRO 3D Chip (OHH YAHH!!!)

Not, that anyone cares...But anyhow...I've been wanting a new computer for several years now...(for gaming and hopefully learing some 3DS)...and now I have around $1300 saved up and I shoudl be able to earn another $200 by christmas which is more then I need for this rig...BYE...Goodnight!

Agreed. I've found newegg.com to be extremely helpful as well. Discounted parts with free shipping which ships in like 2-3 days. Very nice indeed.

For computer equipment I always buy from www.newegg.com and www.tigerdirect.com
Amazon can be pretty good for other things, I've never bought directly from them, always bought goods from the "used and new" alternative when viewing products.

newegg.com is great if you want to just buy outright without price comparison. They offer excellent deals and fantastic service (with very fast shipping). Otherwise pricegrabber.com is my favorite when comparing.
