OK - I use ebuyer, and spend a few £1000 each month with them, but they are letting me down, faulty items, deliverys not turning up on time ect. so who do others use, there must be a better supplier.

Novatech aren't bad for more retail type stuff. I have used scan but have been slightly miffed by their service on occasion. Used to use dabs quite a lot but they're not always competitve on price.

My pc builds are all custom jobbies, more of a hobby than a serious part of my business so a lot of my components come from quietpc and overclockers, probably not the best of places for your volumes.

www.aria.co.uk (http://www.aria.co.uk) - very helpful, good prices. Do Dell bits as well.

Ladymuck are you really a lady, or merely a lady in the "but we're laydies" sense. I've never known a real bird to build PC in their spare time. Or am I being a sexist tw@t? Answers please...

Bless! Yes I am a real laydee! I get that quite a lot to be honest, it doesn't bother me, it's like a kind of low-grade notoriety! I build all my own kit, servers and everything. Haven't bought anything off the shelf for about 5 years or more.

Just placed order for 3 hard drives at MicroDirect -- price was good and Dabs did not have those I wanted in stock anyway -- they'd better be good! http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/eyes.gif

Never had a problem with Microdirect apart from them regularly sending me a catalogue I don't want.

I've just bought a box from Overclockers, very prompt delivery but now I need to sort out a dodgy 'video device' (no driver and no idea what make it is; ladymuck is unique :( ) so I'll let you know how I got on.

I use a few different companies for kit these include

Micro-p (Not the cheapest but really reliable)
MT Electronics - Very little choice (But dirt cheap)
Bluepoint (Massive choice not bad prices)

All the above require a trade account
