    So I am starting to spec out a new rig...Case/Power Supply/Etc...I would like to keep my business local if possible...anyone recommend a good local shop to purchase parts outside of Fry's/online etc? I will build myself but want the guts to come from a local mom/pop shop. Thanks.

    Same... I get everything on newegg/amazon typically as it's so much cheaper. Also.... All the shops I knew of locally I think closed up several years ago (aside from Fry's lol).

    Except my CPU of course... that's about as local as it gets as we built it in Chandler ;)

    I will make note though... Fry's Electronics will price match on-line prices now. So, if you really wanna keep your taxes local instead of paying for shipping >.>

    Just watched it last night. It was awesome and they are talking about making another series due to how big the outcome was in Japan.
