    that being said, i've spent easily over 4k myself there... love em, only ever one customer service hangup, but in the end they took care of me.

    however, are you going to be building? if so, do you have a friend that knows computers well enough to choose and assemble parts? or do you? because with the question about newegg, it arises a concern. please note i am only trying to be constructive with saying this, and i always recommend building your own system. just look up DIY info, and ask if you have questions on here, this is one of the most helpful forums on the web.
    well over 4 thousand dollars. try over seven thousand.... 7105.07

    So back to the origional question....

    Yes. Clearly many of us have spent thousands of dollars with newegg and will continue to do so.

    Yep, they're ok. I don't buy exclusively from them, though. There's a number of websites where I compare prices before actually making my purchase usually.

    I have spent many tens of thousands of dollars there, though (it would take too long to add up, because I have around 20 pages of purchases).

    I hate the direction they're going. Newegg looks more like an Amazon/Overstock hybrid than just a really good cimputer store

    Edit: I've spent $6167.68 since 2005. That number makes me sick and it's starting to feel like the best reason to get out of modding and save my money

    I agree but we all don't have a Microcenter in our backyard....

    Lately I've been buying gear on forums. Saved quite a bit of money over the past year by buying used.

    One thing I really like your mods (and I hope you don't take this the wrong way) is that you get them done. They aren't always the prettiest things, but you get an idea and finish it quickly. My ideas are always attached to perfection and a complete lack of funds, so they rarely even get started.

    You've done nearly 50 mods now. That's like $123 per mod. I know you've spent money other places. But still, that's pretty cheaply done.
