    Hi

    I am just about at the point where I shall be ordering all the main components for my next build - an AMD64 3500 :) :)

    Now one thing I am CERTAIN of is that I am going to house this in a Nexus Breeze case (I am aiming for a nice quiet system). I expect I shall have to buy the case as a "special" - but I was going to try to find just ONE other etailer for my remaining components. I have been surprised that often there is a poor selection of 939 mobos - or limited availability.

    Places I have already been - Novatech, QuietPC, overclock.co.uk, KustomPC and I am also aware of Ebuyer (but not tried there yet). Plus I quite like Komplett - but their server seemed to be down this morning :confused:

    So anyway, any others? Of course I'll click on a few OSNN ads too.... ;)

    I normally recommend newegg.com but I just realized you're in the UK and newegg doesn't ship international which makes this post useless.

    I'm not even sure why i'm hitting the post button..

    I use Dabs and Ebuyer mainly for most components or peripherals. However, there's this other online shop that I tend to look at for some stuff. Might be worth a look.

    most helpful thread - thanks guys! Found I am using Ebuyer for the "guts" IE mobo, processor, RAM, drives and Novotech for the case (they seem to have a monopoly on nexus breeze) plus thecoolingshop was great tip for my coolers since they ship free and had remaindered C model AGP cooler, which suits me fine since I'll need the optional fan to go with it I think for my 9700 pro.

    Probably get the order in tomorrow to build for next weekend :) Unless I get any further ideas that change my mind on SATA or the Winchester as opposed to Newcastle (going to make a thread on that question I think)

    TheCoolingShop is really good for the odd item here and there... :)
