    I had to goto artarmon just to pick up a CD burner because it either wasnt in any local shops or was over $100 over what i saw it advertised.

    I use http://www.beecom.com.au/
    http://www.blueskycomputer.com.au/index.asp
    and Nth. Rocks markets to supplying my main parts then http://www.auspcmarket.com.au/index.php
    http://www.pcmarket.com.au/pricelist/
    http://www.eyo.com.au/
    to supply what those places don't.
    Dick Smith and Jaycar stores are handy to for those small bits and pieces.
    Actually the last two PC's that I've built, all bar the cases and HSF's, all the parts have come from vendors at Nth.Rocks. :smokin:

    Hmm, i prefer not to buy from north rocks anymore, even though its cheap as hell and very close to my house (10mins drive), because half the stuff i bought there for my comp kinda ended up being defective. I had to return a HDD as well as a CD drive because they both were completely busted. I like beecom though, but getting to merrylands with no license is kinda a problem

    You have to know which are the good vendors there to get the right stuff but as with all markets there are a few shady ones as well. ;)

    Yeh actually i bought the 52x Sony CD=Rom for the dudes that own the shop computer target (the one upstairs near the car park) and the people that own a shop in rydalmere. Also my sister bought a monitor from some pom blokes there and she haggled them down so far we shouldve known somethin was wrong. (the monitor never worked). Anyhow if your buying there from someone who doesnt have a shop your askin for trouble

    That's basically it as all the vendors that I buy from there are the ones with propper shops. A good tip is if they ain't of Asian background then stay away from them. :smokin:
