I have always thought http://www.amibench.org was always a great place to find cheap hardware for reasonable prices. There are a couple of Amiga 2000s in the US for sale, but the include alot of video editing hardware. I think the full Amiga Video Toaster setup was only $350! Wow, I wish I had the money to get out and grab it.
Cool, but I don`t really trust those types of sites. Also I`m not just tallking about Amiga specific hardware. The thing I want to buy soon is a decent wireless keyboard. Does anybody have the one that Eyetech sell?

For general PC stuff, get yourself down to your newsagent and get Micromart (a whole £1.60!!). You'll get a good idea of the prices that are being charged. Oh, and it's got an Amiga column.:-D
Computer fairs _can_ offer bargains, but if you have a guide to go on, you know if your getting a bargain or not.
I'm investing in a new PC setup next week and to give you an idea here's what I'm paying:
MSI KT3 Ultra2 M/board £69.33
Athlon XP1800+ £55.23
265MB DDR RAM £44..08
All inc VAT. In my local shop, this would be in excess of £250. The above is from Microdirect, who myself and many others have used before, as they do a 64MB Simms for £15+VAT - bargain!
If it's Amiga stuff you want, then, as has been posted, Amibench or ebay.
should give you a rough idea as to what you should end up paying for PC stuff.
Cool I forgot about that magazine thing. Thanks I`ll have a look.
