Five years ago I went hunting around for the best prices for computer parts online and at Fry’s. I ended up getting parts at all different times and driving to a couple different Fry’s. This time around I ordered everything from NewEgg. They generally have great prices on things, and I also like the idea of spending my money locally (their HQ is about an hour east of here). They’re pretty fast, too; I placed the order Sunday at 2, and everything showed up this morning around 10.

If I were smart, I would have done the 2% Bing cashback and saved another $18.
