Where to buy computer hardware parts

Updated: 12/31/2022 by Computer Hope

Computer hardware, including hard drives, memory, and video cards, are available to purchase online, in brick-and-mortar stores, and through computer manufacturers. Some stores offer new parts only, while others may also offer used parts. For older computers, the availability of parts at stores is often more limited, but manufacturers may have more stock of those older parts. Depending on what hardware you're looking to buy, shop around and see where you can get the parts for the best possible prices.
