Default Best place to buy components for my first build?

I've been primarily browsing through newegg.com because I find it to be the best in terms of price, large selection, value, and customer reviews. Are there any other websites/retail stores you recommend, preferably one with cheaper products, etc.?

micro center has some stuff cheaper than newegg. For example, they have the core i7 920 for only $220.

In the states, the best is Newegg. Great prices, free shipping on selected items, excellent customer service.

In the UK, I believe that Ebuyer.com has the best prices and service.

They do ship within the United States. I don't know if they ship to other countries.

Ahh..Ok. Sorry, for some reason I could've sworn they didn't ship...Idk why I was thinking that though. Apologies.
