Whats the best and cheapest place to get your software and parts from to build a pc? In the past I'v had some good deals from www.aria.co.uk was gonna order MCE 2005 but found it cheaper at pcnextday.co.uk, anywhere else have better deals?

www.priceguideuk.com I always use that as a quick check.
I found there is no one best place but amazon is amazingly good and also play.com (which benefits from a tax loophole)
I also use novatech.co.uk as they sometimes have some great specials running.

Novatech are pretty good - local to me, so most of my gear comes from them. I also use them for work (unfortunately don't get discounts for my gear for home). EBuyer were also good when I ordered my D-Link ADSL router from them a week or so ago.

The kit arrived on time and mostly worked - although why can't manfacturers put an up to date firmware on products that they ship? The D-Link firmware was over a year old and it was a little flaky till I upgraded it. The Asus A8N-SLI I'm typing this from worked flawlessly out of the box, but again, had a BIOS dating back to November last year (2004)! And this board was bought in July (2005), yet!
