TigerDirect has a section of their website for Bare Bones kits. I've built 2 PCs using their products and have been pretty pleased.

Also - take a look at monoprice.com. Just stumbled across them and research indicates they get high marks combined with dirt cheap prices.

I prefer NewEgg and ZipZoomFly to TigerDirect.

I used newegg for my last major upgrade and had a great experience. I've not tired the others so have no comment.
And K is right, about 85% of the fun of building a new PC is researching and deciding what to put in it!

Heh... yeah. And the pain of it is assembling it, having it not work, and then disassembling it. Big cases help in these circumstances... My current machine had a 5V pin pushed out of the logic board/power supply connector when I first assembled it..

Ken, all 3 vendors seem to be pretty decent. I've had good luck with Tiger. Matter of fact, check this badboy .

Eh, I just don't like TigerDirect for reasons other than their customer service.

Not a bad machine, but I'd stay away from socket 754. Maybe I'm just feeling combative today...

NewEgg is fine. My fave's are mwave.com for parts and buyxg.com and xoxide.com for mod toys. I've never dealt with TigerExpress but they have been around forever. I don't do the barebones kits but only because I'm very picky about components. I do have friends who have gone that route and couldn't be happier.
