    Erm... I can only speak for the sites that i've ordered from so therefore...

    scan.co.uk
    ocuk.co.uk
    ebuyer.co.uk
    amazon.co.uk(not really a hardware site but still i've bought components from it)

    Those are the only places i've bought from and they've all been good. Although i've yet to go through the joys of a rma so i dont know how good they are for them.

    If there's one thing i've learnt from this forum its that people should not buy anything from voyeurmods.com

    Scan.co.uk for the best prices on almost anything and excellent customer service. I price check on microdirect.co.uk, dabs.com, ebuyer.com, overclock.co.uk, overclockers.co.uk, novatech.co.uk, yoyotech.co.uk, tekheads.co.uk, savastore.com, and aria.co.uk (I'm sure there is one more) and scan are consistently offering lower prices with overclockers.co.uk their closest competitor. Scan offer cheaper shipping too and as long as you order before 2pm, it will be there next day delivery. Their RMA service is very efficient as well. I don't mean to give them a bump here, but they won CustomPC retailer of the year award 2005 and for good reason. All these website offer a good service, however, even if they price things less competitively.

    Ireland:
    Komplett.ie
    Peats.com (expensive, but very good, always take stuff back, never a problem with them, also a high street store)

    From UK that I've ordered from:
    Dabs.com
    OCUK.co.uk


    I would personally like to take OCUK from the list of 'trusted'. Dont ever try to return or RMA anything through them. I know guys that have been waiting over 1 year for refunds from them. And other horror stories.

    I'm all about teh egg! :)

    Cool thread idea. People in other forums from other countries often ask about pc components and I'm never quite sure where to look to give some recommendations. This thread gives me alot of info on that.
