Any computer stores other than Micro Center?

I'm building a computer, but micro center doesn't have what I need. Are there any other good computer stores in the area, now that Comp USA closed? Otherwise I guess I"ll have to buy everything online.

you are way better off buying computer components online. everything online is cheaper and there is a far wider selection. remember to read reviews about each component so you dont end up regretting your purchase.

Yeah, but I was hoping to buy a case locally so I could have a look at it first, and avoid shipping charges.

There is a place in the same shopping plaza near Circuit City off Waples Mills Rd. It is on James Swart Circle. Don't know the name.

The MarketPro computer shows used to be a good place to haggle, and you can walk around and see all the different components for sale at different tables.

I used to always buy my cases there, because they were considerably cheaper than the 2 or 3 tower cases at CompUSA. You can get a really nice 4 bay tower case and power supply for around $100 there, and even cheaper micro-towers.

They have a show at the Expo Center on Dec 6 and 7.


Damn, they sell Jabra blue tooth earpieces for $19.99. No wonder every white trash and ghetto b-boy is wearing one nowadays. I was wondering why I've seen all these trashy people wearing them recently, when everyone else stopped using them 2 years ago.

They're talking about opening even more stores in other states. They're growing...

Based on the crowd there today (Black Friday), no way are they going anywhere. Waited about 30-35 minutes in line just to check out, and they had every register open. You'd never know there was any hint of a recession based on the shoppers there.
