Are there any computer shops in London?

Is there a computer shop in London? I don't consider PC World a computer shop :P A place where I can come and buy a Gigabyte motherboard for instance... Google doesn't seem to think so. Thank you!

Yes, I know how to google, however... Do you know of just one from this comprehensive list that is actually a computer shop where I can walk in and buy a Gigabyte 990XA-UD3 motherboard?

Wander up and down Tottenham Court Road, always was the techy street.

So, in other words, nobody knows?

I am really not into wandering around, and of course I called a bunch of them, they are mostly into repairs or they can order components, but are not proper computer shops.

And of course I know I can buy online, but my question was if there is a retail shop that sells computer components in London. Judging by the answers there is none...

If you go to, there's a "where to buy" that will show you vendors throughout the UK, including London.

That was the first thing I did, but there were only three options and from the websites it didn't seem like they have retail shops. I did call one of them now and even though they sell online and are moving, they said I can come in and pick it up myself :) So, thank you for the advice, I'm going to DinoPC now (in case anyone else ever needs it).

Sounds great, too bad I didn't know about it earlier when I was upgrading my computer... Thanks! But this week it's closed :(
