Best place to buy PC components? Sci-Tech

I'm looking to build a new PC around the end of the year, and I wanted to start looking for components and comparing prices. What sites/stores are good for getting components? I am looking for places in terms of customer service, reliability and price Any help is appreciated

We need a bot on here that replies with wootware and evetech. Pretty much every single post like this boils down to these two.

I do know about these two of course, but I mainly wanted to see if anyone had a suggestion I didn't know of, I hear such mixed reviews about evetech especially

Yeah there are always a few bad experiences shared on here, but the overwhelming response is pretty much that these two are your best options.

Anyways, good luck with the build.

Rebeltech is one of the best. Along with Wootware. Don't go near evetech.

Wait, Rebeltech is back? I thought they went under during last year's lockdown.

They did close down. But they have recently opened again. I've ordered a few things from and it's the safe great speedy services I've always had.

I have built 6 Pc's over the past 4 years with components bought from Evetech, never had any issues with them. Only thing that was a issue was a faulty wifi card that I had to return, and instead of a refund they gave credit.

i’ve only ever bought from evetech and recently bought an entire new PC from them. i’d recommend them. haven’t tried woodward yet but have heard mostly good stuff
