I'll go to best buy if I must have instant satisfaction as it's all I have, but I'll shop where I always shopped, Newegg. Never shopped at circuit city so I don't miss it.

I actually had better luck at Circuit City than Best Buy sometimes. For example, someone's video card dies and I need a card sooner rather than later. BB only seems to carry $150+ cards when all I need is a cheap, basic card. Circuit City seemed to have a wider array of cards. I was even able to get an AGP card there when all BB carried was PCIe. Of course if I have the time, I'll always go to Newegg.

I only ever shopped for myself there, anything needed for customers was ordered from my suppliers in MA if I didn't have it in stock.

Since we've brought this one back from the dead...

My first choice is MicroCenter as they always seem to have EVERYTHING and you can shop online by store and see how much they have in stock and actually place an order for pickup before you go there. They also aggressively price match everyone including Newegg.

After that would be CompUSA/Tiger Direct. The nice thing is there is a CompUSA brick and mortar near me in sales tax free Delaware, but the issue always seems to be one of supply, they never seem to have a lot in stock.

If buying online, than Newegg all the way.

TigerDirect is my favorite by far. Has most things I'd want from an electronics store.
I do really like Microcenter, but only one store in Chicago
Fry's isn't that bad, but for a person like me, seems to lean more towards a Best Buy then TD or MC

There is still one CompUSA close to were I live though

I like to SEE before I buy
No where. Best Buy dropped most of the product once CompUSA wen't under. Online is your only real source now.
