    Rowby's Hardware list -- and one last question!

    rowby Level 1

      At Baz's suggestion, and for the record I'm posting all of the items I ordererd.

       

      I ordered from Amazon when possible because they do not charge California sales tax.  My other vendor was Newegg, however they are in California so I only ordered from them when I had no other choice.

      Amazon and Newegg had same or similar pricing for the hard drives.  I ordrered my hard drives from New Egg because I read user comments at Amazon that these drives were not well packed.  So even though I had to pay a little sales tax on the hard drives, I bought them from NewEgg.  The drives, from New Egg were very well packed.  (See comments on Amazon regarding padding and packaging of hard drives: http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Spinpoint-Cache-Desktop-HD103SJ/product-reviews/B001U3S5S0/r ef=cm_cr_dp_synop?ie=UTF8&showViewpoints=0&sortBy=bySubmissionDateDescending#R21CR5E7POLET J)
