  1. First of all, I live in Canada.
    I dunno where to get my PC built.
    Is there a website?
    Like only 1 I know is Tigerdirect.

    Where is a good place that I can get PC + PC related hardwares
    for a good price? =)

    The best way to buy a new PC is to build it yourself. It's easier than it sounds.

    But if you must have someone build it for you, check around town to see if there are any computer stores around. I'm not talking Future Shop. I mean little dedicated computer shops, usually not chains. If you find any, ask them if they will build you a computer if you bring them the parts. They usually will, for a fee of course.

    Alternately, you could have one of your friends build it for you, if you know anyone who's experienced with computers and is at least moderately trustworthy.

    Thank you for your information,
    I knew big places like Futureshop aren't good =)

    I got mine built but I've learned from photos and videos how to built a PC,
    it seems pretty simple =) Hopefully I'll have no problem doing it when I do ^^;

    Do you have any suggestions for good websites for PC hardwares?

    http://www.newegg.com is the best, but I don't think they ship to Canada. http://www.tigerdirect.ca has a pretty large stock too.

    But I buy only from a local store in my area. They have the best prices I've ever seen, and a good return policy, not to mention pretty good stock for a store so small.

    Oh yeah?
    I should've be visiting some local dedicated stores too
    and compare prices and return policies and stuff.

    Thanks again! =)

    Newegg does ship to Canada, but you have to place orders at Newegg.ca instead of the main site.
