Tiger Direct (USA) is another option. I've had only one order, and it was fine, but that doesn't make a good dealer. If anyone else has had good luck with them, add your words.....

http://www.pc-specialist.co.uk is another one. A small company without the ususal overheads, so cheaper prices, choice and customer service. :)

Couple of others I sometimes use as well as the other UK ones (I tend to stick with scan for most stuff though).

http://www.savastore.co.uk/

http://www.microlandtechnology.com/

Always good to have a nice big list of stores so that you can shop around for the best prices :)
