Price Comparison Site for computer items?

I'm looking for the best price on a Soyo SY-KT333 Dragon, but Pricegrabber only comes up with one site, which really doesn't do me much good, so I'm wondering if there's any price comparison sites out there that would help me.

Or, could you suggest sites that you would use to buy pieces of a new computer at good prices?

I know of Newegg, TigerDirect, and some others, but any suggestions are welcome.

I agree on pricewatch.com

I go there to find the best price

then I check newegg, compgeeks, and outpost.com
if either of those three sites have comparable prices, Ill pay a little extra to buy from them.. otherwise, Ill pick the cheapest place from pricewatch (gotta pay close attention to shipping and handling)

Thanks - forgot about pricewatch - used them to find a bunch more retailers with the Soyo Dragon KT333. I then compiled and compared across various retailers and found the best prices for various pieces of the computer. Looks like AICMicro.com is getting my business:

Really sucks that all these friggen retailers are in CA - have to pay tax at all of them.

Killerapp.com used to be the best. It now is owned by CNet which has taken over its price searching functionality. Try:

I hope you looked into the retailer before ordering

The price is 158.00 plus roughly 10.52 shipping.so 168.52

Newegg is 161.00 plus 8.00 shipping or 169.00 I would pay the 48 cents and go with the better retailer.

heck if you want I will pay you 48 cents if you go to the E3 get together

I actually went with AIC Micro for the motherboard, CPU, RAM, and fan, all assembled and tested - I don't think newegg offers that option.

AIC Micro www.aicmicro.com
Soyo SY-KT333 Dragon Ultra, AMD Athlon XP Socket A 1900+
Samsung 512MB PC2700 333MHz DDR SDRAM, Assemble & Test
Thermaltake Volcano 7 Variable Heatsink & Cooling Fan Speed Control
Total: $470 + shipping ($11.55) and tax (36.42) = $517.97

But I did buy a nice Lite-On CD-RW from Newegg and paid a buck or two more than another retailer because I've heard good things about Newegg.
