Hello, I'm new to these forums. I was wondering if any knows of site as good as newegg that will ship products to Canada? If none, any advice on where to buy parts would be appreciated.

I'll second bytewize. I've bought several CPUs and Upgradeware slot convertors off of them

Tigerdirect.ca is another good one.

I have bought 6 computers from www.ncix.com and have been happy. If you find a lower price somewhere else just price match.

I live in the Toronto, Ontario area and have had good dealings with these companies:

http://www.canadacomputers.com

http://www.liata.com

http://www.razorcomputers.net

They are all local to this area but I have had good service from them.

There's also:

http://www.dealsdirect.ca

As well as

http://www.tigerdirect.ca

Both are based in the Ottawa region, if I'm not mistaken. I've purchased from Deals Direct before and have had no problems with them.

No problem ... I wanted to check out Atic.com, so clicked on your link and got a 404.

Incidentally, for anyone considering buying from them, I'd check their reviews. At the very least, I wouldn't buy from them unless you are local ... and even then, I would avoid them unless you enjoy sales staff taking a shit on you. Those reviews were ... an eyeopener.

I have no idea about firestorm ... sorry.

As for Atic ... many of those reviews were from well before they changed their site. Their prices are good, but I'm quite leary about their customer service and seeming inability to honour warranties.

First off the correct address is: http://www.atic.ca/

next it is true about there questionable customer support but they have some of the best prices around...so do what every other vancouverite does, shop ncix and price match to atic.ca

FINALLY STAY AWAY FROM TIGERDIRECT!
1. they are notoriuous for shipping incorrect or inferior products to what you order

2. There customer service/returns are non existant

3. They sell refurbished products under the title as new

best of both worlds!
cheers,

a.

well NCIX is located in vancouver. They're a pretty good store, cheap, excellent service, and never heard of any major complaints. It's one of the best stores, just look at resellerratings.com

another good place is www.anitec.ca

I usually try to avoid Atic.ca. Although it may be cheap, they give the shitest service ever!

one of the most popular ones here are Anitec and NCIX.
