    Hey all,
    Im not new to building computers and use to get my components locally but my usual place closed down a year ago. I also really don't like the competitors. I've found a lot of the components I want to use on newegg.ca but have never really ordered from there nor have I ever ordered components online. I have bought other items online before just not computer components.

    Any reviews or cations I should be aware off before ordering from them?

    Newegg.ca is solid.
    I have a few good computer stores near me, so I try to buy locally, but otherwise I've had good experience ordering from there.

    Newegg.com (or .ca in your case ;)) is one of the best PC part online stores I have shopped at.
    I built a PC from scratch through Newegg for around $1,600 and it had the same parts a topnotch Alienware that costed $4,200!
    I've had nothing but great service from them!
    Shipping is reasonable + returns are easy and fair.

    Newegg.ca is a fine place to shop, but keep in mind that since its distribution center is in US they all ship from US. This can be a problem when you want to return stuff.
