    There have been a couple of threads about Monarch and what I read
    isnt positive.[the Trading Mods can supply info via pm perhaps]

    Are the combos from Tigerdirect not good? As for Monarch, good riddance, but they never refunded me for the Opteron 165 they never shipped.

    Ive never bought from Tiger Direct...but Ive seen them and their catalog forever.
    Didnt someone mention[one time or another] the Egg as selling combos?

    Hey Palm...thanks. They seem to have a pretty fair selection [Tiger Direct]
    I might not have thought about them.

    Also BullDog another search

    Some folks have little trouble with Tiger, but be leery of the rebate promos. Others have complained that they will ship obviouly "Open Box" items to you and yet others complain of their customer service

    I checked one joint that came up at Pricewatch. I clicked Asus...and found these guys. I didnt look too deeply but at least I saw selection and for the most part good reviews

    I've bought a few things from TigerDirect now and haven't been burned yet. I bought a Seagate 160gb HD from them last year for $19.97 AR! The rebate did come but it took almost 4 months. Very slow but a good deal nonetheless. I recently bought a Sempron 3000+ from them that had a $40 rebate. I'll be sure to post here if or when they burn me on the rebate. I expect a long wait again though, but I'll wait for a $10 processor.

    PS, Bulldog, the "Babes" thread is calling your name.

    i've done the combo thing at egg, tdirect and fry's . some with rebates and w/o with no problems.

    the thing to watch for is trying to do a cheap build on the rest of the hardware, ie mem or psu. a lot of people had trouble with td's ultra ram. for a good psu you pay out the ... .

    Re: Monarch Computer

    Thanks guys..

    Not a fan tiger direct.. always thought there prices where higher then most and they didnt seem to to have a big selection.. maybe I'll take a look at them again.

    I know mwave has combos but never bought any.. so i might give them a try too. I've bought other things from them and they have been pretty good.
