Where to buy PC components

  mb1980y 08:35 20 Aug 2010


I'm looking into buying components to build a pc and I'm after some general idea what places are good to buy from.

Does anyone know what there returns are like if you have faulty parts etc ?

Just after some general feedback before I part with a large amount of cash. Plus this way I can get a more current view on what people actually think.

Also consider Dabs and Maplins.

I have sent two items back to Overclockers for replacement, no problems at all. All done within 10 days from first contact to delivery of replacements.

and am happy with...
eBuyer, (despite a thread I've just started about them!),

Amazon, (who are brilliant with returns),

cclcomputers.com, who have a good, helpful and friendly customer service, (though I've never had to return anything to them so can't comment on that aspect).

Good luck,

as AL47 says 'just use who comes out cheapest' but make sure you are comparing like with like including vat and delivery. Often someone will have a special offer which is worth taking advantage of. Moneysavingexpert has a way of getting the cheapest deals from Amazon who I always check before ordering from elsewhere.

In general your not likely to get the best after sales service when buying the cheapest,some are only interested in getting your order,your problems are just that...your problem not theres
