Ask your local store if they'd be willing to price match the online retailers. As long as the online stores have product in stock at the price advertised, your store should be willing to match. I'm talking about major components: GPUs, CPUs, Mobos, etc. Don't expect a price match on fans.

At the very least, they might drop down to advertised price + what you would pay for shipping. That way you get to support a local business, and you'll get service from them if you ever need to warranty an item.
