i don't know if this is the right place to post it, but I think woot.com is a great (albeit random) site for any tech enthusiast...didn't see it listed. i only recently found out about it, but apparently all my friends have known about it for years :roll:

edit: i think it would qualify under "deal sites"

I pop in from time to time, but haven't posted in ages. Just got finished adding some links. Since this list is posted on a few different forums, what I generally do is periodically update a master list I have saved on my PC, then copy paste to each forum.

In addition to recommending sites, if anyone finds any broken and/or outdated links, post away so they can be fixed or removed. 8)

For my fellow canucks! Great prices and ultra speedy (often overnight) delivery:
http://www.directcanada.com/

For anyone in Montreal or on the south shore (a local store in each area):
http://www.ordicentre.com/anglais.php?refresh=29102
Super prices on parts, cases and anything you need for a build.
Especially great prices on RAM

I didnt notice CLUBIT on the list. However, I did see 4 mentions of the site when I did a search. Whats the deal with this online vendor? Trusted, good shipping? etc..etc..etc..

Anyone have any experience with them?

Dirt cheap prices for cabling, found this via a short segment on DL.tv a while back.

The first one, an acrylic, lexan and plastics FAQ is a great Q&A on some of the more common questions concerning Plexi type materials... http://case-mods.linear1.org/acrylic-le ... stics-faq/

Bit-tech.net has a great thread with info and links for just about everything you need to know about setting up an LCD... http://forums.bit-tech.net/showthread.php?t=44604

To go along with it, a nice explanation on Potentiometers and how to wire them as Rheostats... http://www.allaboutcircuits.com/vol_6/chpt_3/7.html

LED series/parallel array wizard... http://led.linear1.org/led.wiz

I have used them a couple of times.. In my book, they are a five star vendor in my book. Fast Shipping and all... don't be afraid to use them!

There was a representative from the company over at another forum that used to throw deals out that topped Newegg constantly... I don't know what happened tho as I haven't seen a clubit deal post in quite some time :(
