Lazada online shopping sells a bunch of computer parts. I haven't bought any computer parts from them but have bought many other thing from them and have never been disappointed.:smile:

I've bought a few bits n pieces for my PC from Lazada and everything has been OK so far - the packaging has been a bit iffy though but it's going in the trash anyway so no matter

Most of the 'electronic' parts I've bought from Lazada have been fine, but it's practically impossible to avoid Chines fake crap now, and my last order sorry to say , did include such useless stuff,... so 'buyer beware',  and read the reviews.

I'm sure there is reputable PC shops that have what you want or can get it for you. 

Google is often your friend or Facebook search.

i will look into it. however. i was thinking about doing pc repair work and wanted a shop to stop into..  i prefer looking at the PC stuff in person to make sure it will work..  but thanks for the suggestion. and thanks to everyone else as well :) i will do a bit more googling too..  i have stopped in at advertised PC parts stores around yet.. when i go in and ask them. it turns out all they are is an internet cafe..

Since I gave you a "like" maybe you can tell me why my PC lately sticks for a few minutes at the Starting Windows screen.:smile: This happened to me awhile back on a different computer and it turned out to be a power supply problem.:89:

I am yet to find a proper PC shop (one that stocks a wide range of components) rather than mostly pre-built PCs in Cagayan De Oro either however strangely there is one in Ozamiz.  They have a pretty extensive range of components and accessories (albeit not a lot of high end very expensive options), including typical gamer cases (sufficient to build up bling type gaming PCs).

I've always wondered why there but not in a larger city.
