the only recommendation i can tell you about stores is stay away from futureshop because 1- they arent too good about taking anything back and 2- all their stuff is much more than independant or privately owned companies with the same parts

well if you live in canada I can help you out, i live there 2, i live in ontario, missisaauga, now i kno a few stores that have parts u need, try compuresource or DuraPC those have cpu chips, for ram try future shop but dont go to best buy because of there cheap warranty, a good video card store would be durapc though.

guess i just need to research the companys and advantages of each i suppose,
im kinda leaning towards a nforce 3 chipset seems like the best out there other then the 4 which is to expensive for me.
