where to buy pc parts

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello everyone!


I live in France and my mom, who still lives in Montreal, asked me tips to buy a new pc. As a good son, I will help here but I dont know where to search to find good pc parts for good prices.

Here in France, there are many websites where you can choose the parts you want to build a pc yourself, or they can build it up for you. They all have a éconfig builder" tool where you choose your parts one by one and see the price being updated in real time.

I'm here today to ask you what are the sites that offer the same service in Canada. If you guys could give me the good ones and the bad ones, it would be very helpfull.


Thanks in advance for your help!

I'd recommend amazon, newegg, and memory express. Those are just the ones I've personally used. However I always find the best price on PC Partpicker https://pcpartpicker.com/list/, just make sure you set the location to Canada or it will show you different currencies as well as websites. I think it's set to american by default. You can browse by individual parts and see the lowest prices across quite a few retailers (most of the big ones) or spec out a build and see total cost.


Edit: It also shows component compatability, and @wkdpaulpointed this out but the Canadian link is here, the other one was american

That's because you're using the US URL, the Canadian URL for PCPP ;



@Posoroko utilise le lien vers PC part picker, c'est la même chose que top achat.com ;)
