Hi zx6r


Try Mesh computer component Store........ see link

http://meshcomputer.dsvr.co.uk...g/AM...on64_based.html' ">http://meshcomputer.dsvr.co.uk...MD_Athlon64_based.html

I've bought quite a few OEM products from them in the past..... The trick is to go to the store or phone and haggle. Sales team can often sell lower than web site suggest.
They also have a wider range of components than the web selection..... so ask if you don't see what you want

In the UK i like http://www.aria.co.uk' ">http://www.aria.co.uk as there is feedback on most items from previous purchasers.

I would avoid the computer fairs in the UK, nearly every PC builder who builds for a living avoids them because of there reputation for selling shody, and often knocked off components.

comp fairs are a great place for enthsiasts especially if you know what you are looking for. you can handpick cpu steppings and often get quality brand new goods at a good price. most regulat traders ther are registered companies doing a bit of extra business
