Default Online Part Retailers in Australia?

I've had just about enough of www.mwave.com.au!

They have slow processing times and they arent reliable,it's the second time something i have ordered become discontinued after i order it,so im delayed by a day or two and have to find a similar item!

That's a bit hard when youve quoted a customer for a specific product!

Anywho,anyone make any recomendations?

I have three bookmarked for reference, but being in the US, I've never ordered from any of them.

I use StaticICE first and foremost then I usually use PC Maniacs, Mwave (just ordered $350.00 worth this week) PC Casegear, Scorptec, AusPCMarket (may seem expensive but postage is included in the pricing)

I used to use Umart but they've lost the plot imo.

I Normally use shopbot but i did a quick comparison between some parts and static ice found the parts cheaper than Shopbot which is awesome! I'll have to checkout the other sites too.

umart and MSY are cheap. they have outlets close enough to my home for pick up.
i have used pccasegear, and techbuy. good service imo.
also ITESTATE can be cheap

have also used auspcmarket, and a few others.... i-tech, online vip,...scorptech, pcmaniacs, pricepoint.

have heard good reports about itsdirect, but havent yet ordered from them.

no shortage of online retailers :-D

When i get my P's i'll be going to MSY (Nearest is chipping norton) because they are hella cheap! IT Estate got a PC Authority award last year and i have heard good reports so i'll have to give them a shot too! Though i like how ITSDirect have MSN Live Support!
