Yeah, I have looked at ClubIT, but it has a much smaller selection than newegg. If you can find what you are looking for there, it is usually better though.

I generally compare between Newegg, Amazon and Tiger direct. If I had to break down how much business they get here's how it would look.

Newegg 90%
Amazon 8%
Tiger Direct 2%

Reason tiger doesn't get really any business from me is they screwed me around on the first CPU I bought. I ended up dealing with Intel rather than Tiger Direct for the RMA which kind of pissed me off.

In the UK, I'd say
Microdirect.co.uk (best)
Scan.co.uk (I'm not really a fan though, as things are cheaper at Micro Direct)
Overclockers.co.uk
Pixmania UK
Ebuyer.com (good site)
