Alternatives to newegg?

I've used as an occasional alternative to newegg. They have a 
fairly wide selection, and aggressive prices, but an inferior site to 
newegg when it comes to product research. and are similar. is more like 
a wholesaler (almost an obsolete concept these days), but their often 
lower product prices are canceled out by excessive shipping charges. The 
one advantage they offer is that like newegg, they have regionally 
distributed warehouses and can fulfill orders quickly.

Micro Center has gone out of their way to synchronize their CPU prices 
with online retailers. If they'd do that, or at least come closer to it 
for the rest of the components, I'd use them a lot more. It's also hard 
to beat the convenience of ordering online and being able to pick up the 
item 30 minutes later in Cambridge.
