Yes...

Always use...

http://www.resellerratings.com before ordering from an online pc parts store.

Can prevent ALOT of mistakes. If the companies rating is low and/or they have lots of complaints...DON'T order from them.

Pro's for online ordering is simple...much much much much much cheaper then ordering from a PC store.

(Just walk into comp usa or bestbuy and price out some pc parts...not to mention a local computer shop)

Cons: Returns (Not as bad now as most local stores charge a 15% restocking fee) and shipping costs.
