Default Buying computer components

Am in the UK, there is a computer shop in my town, my question is where they buy there components from and how much cheaper are they compared to the retail price.

Would it just be a computer wholesaler they buy from.

t would vary but most likely yes i would assume a computer wholesaler.

The cheapest prcies your average consumer are likely to find are going to be on Ebuyer.com and Aria.net or Aria.co.uk i can't remember which it is?

Probably buy from the wholesaler, or depending on their size / what they offer, may buy in bulk from internet / direct from business suppliers.

Ebuyer.com is one of the cheapest agreed. Also try overclockers.co.uk, and scan.co.uk.

Your going to be paying more for general shops like PC worl / Currys etc. Although the lower end systems, they can crank out for cheap (The ones including monitor OS system etc for 300) but as you move up the quality bracket, they generally add a fair bit ontop. Best browsing the deals, especially 'buy of the week' 'buy of the day' etc, to pick up things at good prices.
