I shop at Microcenter, Fry's, and Newegg. Generally the best places to get parts. You can include TigerDirect and ZipZoomFly as well.
You haven't said what you wanted to do with your computer. That can make a difference. For example you might not want a $500 video card when something like nvidia 8800gts 320meg video card can be had for much cheaper.
All the parts recommend here are quality parts. If you have to save a bit of money either go with the next step down processor or video card. Power supply is the last thing you want to skimp on.

Good point, though. I went strictly without looking at rebates, but then I didn't list a shipping cost, either. Probably just about even out. And...pricing is about as stable as Windows ME. They are subject to change at the seller's fancy.
My build is not for gaming, but will be a stable platform and I've left lots of room for upgrading.
