Hi,
I'm visiting Ney York for the first time in November (really looking forward to it) and I was hoping to pick up some new computer parts (specifically a new motherboard and processor). I was hoping somebody on this forum could suggest some good stores to visit.
Thanks in advance
David Hayes

Wander around Chinatown if you are looking to Frankenstein a machine together.

If you want name brands and the like, J & R is a decent place, B & H is also pretty good.

Do NOT go to Best Buy, Circuit City or any other big chain. You will get doubly hosed in the city with those big boys.

Look up the addresses using Google or PriceWatch...

If anyone knows any SPECIFIC stores in Chinatown, that would be helpful (I usually shop online).

Not a brick and mortar store, but I personally prefer newegg.com for my computer parts.

Same here.

www.pricegrabber.com (http://www.pricegrabber.com) is a good price check, but it has competition (don't use MySimon, it has fallen a long way since it started, and even further when it tried going mainstream with their CGI commercials).

A good double check on the retailers would be www.resellerratings.com (http://www.resellerratings.com).

And, finally, coupons? www.fatwallet.com (http://www.fatwallet.com) and www.dealtalker.com (http://www.dealtalker.com).

All good spots.

Good luck!
