    Never tried Tigerdirect so I can't say it sucks or not, but what I like about newegg is their payment options, specially the BillMeLater option, and I've never had any problems with newegg so I keep going to them for my computer needs.

    TigerDirect charges me tax also because there is a local store in NC. But all around its a solid store..kinda pricey though.

    I use Tigerdirect because they give me 6months same as cash and then I pay it with my tax refund in January lol. That is what I did when I ordered my 3700+ that will be here tomorrow.

    I have ordered lots of stuff from Tiger Direct, never had a problem, they have a warehouse in Chicago and I live in Indiana, so I get my stuff from there in 1 day. NewEgg has a better selection of stuff than Tiger Direct.

    Tigers site is harder to use, doesn't give as good of descriptions, and doesn't display comments per part that I know of.

    They also do too many tricks with rebates, I can't stand that.

    Overall I've had much MUCH better luck with the egg, have done several grand worth through them.

    I never heard this much about tigerdirect. I thought it was a good online store. Hmmm. I like tiger because sometimes they have awesome deals and prices.

    Oh well.

    Tigerdirect has worked fine for me in the past, and they do display comments, just not many people comment on most items so you can find maybe 3 on a "good" product.

    Isn't TigerDirect ridiculously overpriced? Has been every time I compared around prices. I don't see why anyone WOULDN'T prefer newegg over them. And if you're in Canada (like me), NCIX, Anitec, ByteWize tends to get you a better deal.

    I bought from Tiger Direct when I was building my first PC about 18 months ago. I ordered a case/PSU combo. Of course, they decide to send me the wrong case with the wrong PSU (i expected 400 W, they gave me 350 W). I sent it back and haven't done business with them since and never will again. Their customer service was absolutely dreadful when I was going through the RMA process.

    TigerDirect actually does do international orders.

    well a good site is http://www.overclockers.co.uk/
    but I heard their going to stop doing international sales as somebody from the netherlands who had orderd a X1900XTX from them & had it stolen whilst onroute to him Obviously the package had been tracked all the way to its destination. but all the buyer got was an empty X1900XTX box. Im not saying that it doesnt happen but its sad that there are a few c*nts working in places like those who'd steal what you worked 2 friggin weeks straight for. If that happend to me Id make sure Id go down to the mail depo even if its overseas with a shotgun & see if they'd try n steal that too. obviously Id allow then to steal 1 or 2 caps of buckshot. but somebody who works in them places & steals other peoples stuff needs his fingers cut off with a rusty jagged knife.....
