Can anyone suggest a good parts supplier for everything from cables to motherboards?
I want to build my own system.
Thanks for your help.

You might want to check www.resellerratiings.com (http://www.resellerratiings.com) for user/buyer opinions of various companies. I plan on using www.transendpc.com (http://www.transendpc.com) as a source for at least some of my components on my next homebuilt. Harry

For ALL small stuff:
http://www.dalco.com , but ask for a printed catalog. The online catalog is good but incomplete, especially on the little stuff.

Dalco has little bits you didn't know existed, and almost every possible cable. Prices and quality are usually good, service is usually excellent.

Dalco also has motherboards, but their listings look like old-stock. They used to sell some real junk no-name mobos, then they sold only Asus, now they have three brands. But still, unless they happen to have what you want, I would not buy mobos from them.

The printed catalog is a comprehensive guide to just about anything you can put in, on or near a PC. You need it just for looking.

Computer shows are also a great place to get small stuff that computer stores really overcharge for...

www.pricewatch.com (http://www.pricewatch.com) is great place for finding parts cheap. If you want quality parts, www.ntrs.net (http://www.ntrs.net) is a good place... I visit their store in person to do my shopping, but if I move away I would start ordering via their website. I would order over phone because their orders, least right now, are done though email (unsecure if you use credit card). If you want to have fun while buying parts go to www.ubid.com (http://www.ubid.com) and try getting great prices that way, I have done that myself, but site has become more popular meaning less deals than used to.
