Alternatives to newegg?

I have never see a problem with packing from newegg, oem or otherwise. This motherboard is the first thing I can remember being doa. And unfortunately I can't locate any board that offers as much as the asus did. Just have to use an asus desktop board from newegg it looks like. 

As for alternative sites I will say tigerdirect is just a painfull site to use. Which is why I won't shop there.  I think zipzoomfly and pcconnection were the only sites I found with as detailed seach as newegg.

What's the supposed connection? Items with expedited shipping receive 
rougher handling?

I recall seeing a lot of recent drive reviews complaining that OEM 
drives were poorly packaged for shipping.
