Is there seriously no major Brick + Mortar PC Part store anymore?

Pennsylvania only has one Micro Center and no Fry's, so no better here. But I do live near that Micro Center. The next closest one is in Brooklyn and there's no way I'm driving to NYC.

Yeah, VA seems kinda boned in that department as well. I mean, we do have one micro-center in fairfax, but I live in richmond and having to drive 100 miles to go get something just isn't worth it. i guess an hour and a half isn't really that bad, but a three hour round trip would have to save me a big chunk of money to be worth it. I already spend 50% of my day EVERY day driving.

Sometimes I love the fact that Micro Center is based in Ohio

There's a local place here called Computer Renaissance. They are so pathetic, the last time I went into their store I told the guy that he should give up because no PC enthusiast would ever buy a case for $150 dollars, or a Radeon HD7950 for $500 dollars.

His prices are absolutely staggeringly huge.

He told me to not shop here if I didn't like his prices, and then I laughed in his face and told him nobody is going to shop here ever, I hope your store ******* fails.

We have milwaukee PC in Wisconsin. It's a small chain but we have one even right in my home town of 10k population.

The problem is that everything is over priced. It's nice when you need something right away though. My hard drive died recently and it was worth paying the 20 extra dollars to not wait a week for a new one to arrive.
