Question Where To Buy, In Toronto, And Get Great Deals..?!

Where would be the best place to shop for PC parts in Toronto, and get the best deals if I buy everything there...basically what I am asking if there is any computer store in Toronto that would want all my business for about a $3500 purchase and would be willing to give me some really good prices?!

Canada Computers. If you buy online, NCIX.

What are you getting with $3500?

+1 Canada Computers. Infonec (Infonec Computers - Computer parts Canada, PC Components, laptop computers, motherboards, processors, CPU’s and much more) has great prices as well, often cheaper than CC. Their Markham location is the largest and they have some good guys there too.

Can't buy online, don't have a credit card, but now since NCIX uses Interac Online, I'd consider it, however I want the items right in my hand right away.

I don't know yet, if the Ci7EE would have been under $1000 Canadian I would have gotten that...but now I don't know.

I know where it is, I used to work down that way -- at FactoryDirect, when they primarily sold computers; what happened to them as they hardly have any computers anymore it seems except on their web site....

I use canada computers, i use their store in kingston which seems to be the smallest and they still usually have what i want. I know they also do online sales and within ontario i think its 1-3 day shipping, and you can pay with a bank account or paypal, i think you actually save money using a bank account directly since it saves them the fees. Theres enough locations in the gta that you should easily be able to find what you need without doing that. They also have a slight discount if you pay in cash, usually a dollar or 2 on cheaper items but enough for lunch anyways :D

I agree. Canada Computers has the best prices around. I find that Infonec's prices tend to be a little more expensive. They will hold items for you as well if they are running very low on a particular item. As far as negotiating prices...don't see it happening.

If you can't order online, Canada Computers seems to be the best price wise around

filtechcomputer.com FTW

The store looks like a hole in the wall but they have good stuff, good prices, and they are friendly. What more can you ask for?

Stop pimping canadacomputers - their prices are not that great and neither is the service.
