Where are you at? You always could just use pricegrabber.com, pricewatch.com, and good old froogle.com to find the best prices.

EBAY... I have experience... get cheap stuff off ebay from Buyitnows or newegg and then charge a service price to gain a profit. For example... my friend replaced this guys modem for 50 bucks... he got the modem for 5 bucks including shipping off ebay... so he made 45 dollars.

ALSO... It would be wise not to tell the customer the exact price of the goods you buy... I know it's common sence but some people don't have it .

Imagine if you have to service 4 of those modems or more. Man, the dough will be rolling in.

Oh yeah, how could I have forgotten eBay?! A very good place. And yeah, you can make some mad money fixing people's computers. Just look at Best Buy's Geek Squad pricing. It's ridiculous (like $150 to install a drive or $80 to install RAM).

Ebay ... i've seen newegg but since i live in australia, to my knowledge it doesn't ship to there
Ebay has quite good prices, i've seen stuff that are near free as compared to the prices that you buy at the shops, and they all work !
So my best best is definately Ebay
Cheap and easy

Yeah, you just have to be patient. Sometimes it takes a little time to get the best deal, especially if it's a desirable item.
