    As title really, I was wondering if anyone knows of decent shops that sell a lot of pc components.

    I've tried Tottenham Court road and was left underwhelmed, pc world etc as you know is absolute crap, and sells next to nothing.

    Before anyone says to order online, I have, but I prefer buying from a store as I get impatient and like having a place to return to if I get any problems.

    I didn't post this in the computer section as I thought it would fit better in here, cheers.

    Yeah I went to yoyotech.

    I found them rude, and most of the stuff was out of stock.

    Go to a computer fair.

    Computer Fair

    Go early, wander round all the stalls and see what's there and who has the best deals. Remember what you saw and where you saw it and then buy it.

    YEah I was thinking fo going there, would you say it's safe buying from there?

    i.e I don't want to buy something that turns out to be faulty and then the following week the stalls dissappeared.

    Regular computer fairs are there every week and the same people often turn up each time. Also the people there usually have a shop somewhere. Get a business card off them if you are worried. If really worried then move onto someone else.
