OFF TOPIC - Anyone got a connection for computer equipment

Dear fellow MBers -
Can anyone help a poor doctoral candidate with the purchase of a new computer? - No im not asking for money, but rather if anyone has any connections or sources for getting parts cheap.
Im trying to narrow down what I want, but i think im gonna go with the AMD athlon - 1.2ghz with the 266 fsb seems about the best price point.

Anyway - not to ramble - if you can help out, I'd really appreciate it. You can reach me at directly, or reply here, whatever is more convienient for you-

Best Wishes and take care,
George Androulakis

Your best bet is to look at the "hot deals" forum at <>. Most of the "techies" there swear by Great service and prices.

whatever you do, use to read what people have experienced with online computer places.

I have used tens of times without incident. I have also used and have not been able to beat their prices and service anywhere.

When you build, go for the Asus motherboard. I haven't heard one issue with them and peripheral stuff.

I had some trouble with my ABIT KT7A-RAID board and SB Live!, and ethernet card, and my HP printer.

Hi George:

Try Tiger Direct. I have had good luck with them in the past. They are a very large mail order outfit. Thier address is

They have some wonderful deals at times. Now is a good time to purchase, memory prices are really low. Throw a lot of memory at it and it will run better.
