I've used www.computeruniverse.net Because they are based in Germany the taxes and prices are lower, but you have avoid products that may be too German localised, like keyboards. They have an English website and are happy to reply to questions in English

I bought a new hard disc and memory for my laptop there when I just couldn't find it anywhere else.  I see they now have 319 motherboards listed

Many Thanks Guys for the Info.

I've used some of the sites you mention and the experience has generally been good. I'll now check out the ones I didn't know.

Thanks once again.

I backup what Ian says.  LDLC are the best in France for component shopping by Internet.  They have a great range of recent stuff, their search engine and shopping basket is very nicely designed, their prices are VERY competitive, recently they have been offering free delivery, their returns policy is fair and, if your French is up to it, you can participate in their online customer forums/reviews and get some very good idea of how others have appreciated the products that interest you.

I have used www.ldlc.fr a couple of times and been pleased with their prices / service.
