If the moderator for this forum feels this post is in the wrong place, feel free to move it.

I need to purchase quite a few items:
New desktop computer, laptop battery, antivirus software, video camera, Dreamweaver/Flash software and possibly a digital camera. I would really like to buy all of these items from the same loaction and hopefully get a good deal/discount. I am also in the market for a Blackberry but don't know if I have to buy that from my provider. Any suggestions where to buy from for the best prices? Thanks.

I use newegg.com constantly and have had no problems with mail order from them. Good pricing excellent delivery. Been ordering from them for years for both personal and business (computer and parts resale).

I have heard the same about Tiger Direct from others.

It's tough to find a place that sells hardware for cheap that also carries more than a smattering of software. CDW.com is probably the closest thing to a happy medium price-wise, if you're truly wedded to the notion of buying everything from a single source.

If you’re willing to take them from multiple sources (sometimes best if there is free shipping offers)

Then.. I recommend
anandtech.com - hot deals
slickdeals.net
fatwallet.com

Otherwise I'd suggest zzf or amazon or newegg (not a exact match though)

I've often used either newegg or Tiger Direct, whichever one had either everything I needed or the best pricing. I've also ordered from CDW, and a long time ago, from CompUSA. Amazon has pretty much a full line of software. Several years ago, they bought out a software company I had ordered from 20 years ago, Egghead Software.

Try TigerDirect.com mate.
All of them will come to a nice price, so when he totals it up just ask for a discount. They may or may not give it but it never hurts to ask.
Whatever vendor you chose you can also Ask.com or google for coupons for the vendor.

Thanks for all the advice and I'm doing the research. I see a few people said Tiger Direct but before I buy anything on the internet, I check for complaints and there are tons of complaints about them. newegg doesn't seem to have many complaints, so I might try them.

Another thing to consider is Amazon. They carry all of the items that you list and they do free shipping above $25. Usually there is no sales tax, either.

They have an excellent return policy on items that I had to return (however with regards to electronics you need to review the buyer's agreements for RESTOCKING FEES and Return policies).
