Everybody shops for products in a manner that fits within their comfort zone and habits. Shopping for computer hardware is not much different than shopping for any other products. You need to snoop around in computer stores, mailing flyers and newspaper ads.

If you are shopping for 1 or 2 parts for an upgrade or to replace bad PC hardware then cheap computer parts are "where you find them." But if you are building your own cheap computer, then shopping online and shopping securely is the way to go.

Shopping For Cheap Computer Hardware Offline

There are only a few retail outlets that sell computer hardware directly to the consumer. Most of these are retailers that once sold their own store brand computers.

Because of the sudden popularity of PC makers like Gateway and more recently Dell and Hewllet Packard, the smaller hometown retailers were forced to change their business model to survive.

Some of these surviving computer parts and accessories outlets are good possibilities for buying cheap computer hardware others are not. You will find better deals at a small local computer shop than retail chain stores.

Retail chain stores like, Office Depot or Best Buy concentrate on business products and services and have a very high mark-up on computer hardware.

If you are fortunate enough to have a local computer shop that sells primarily computer hardware and repair service, there is a chance you will find some good deals on computer hardware. Get to know your local PC technician. You will get much better technical support and recommendations from a local PC shop.

Your local technician has hands-on experience and most technicians are willing to share their knowledge and advice on hardware and software.

Please support your local computer guru, they get hungry too.
