    I'm going to build a computer hardware selling website, is there any good computer site that you like? Please let me know so I can take a look at their layout and design. What do you think about http://www.computerstop.com website, which looks nice, in my opinion, thanks.

    Not quite a hardware store, but I really like http://www.pcmech.com, it looks clean, and computer related, and loads pretty fast as well.

    I like Anandtech and Tom's Hardware personally. Of course I also like PCMech because I helped design it, but the first two are my fav.

    As for stores, I like TCComputers.com's and Buy.com (except the nasty splash page).

    I agree, Tom's Hardware is a nice site.

    I was asking about desing, NOT content, I don't like the design of tomshardware.com, though, beside, that's a hardware-review website, not hardware-selling like computerstop.com.

    pcmech.com is a good one, please let me know more.

    I am a big fan of all the computer/game related sites designed by Power of Sight.

    Mo (the designer) is the man

    ArsTechnica.com is my favorite tech site. Don't understand a lot of the posts, but the ones I do, it's pretty nice.

    Thsi sis NOT strictly a computing site, but a site for an Internet magazine.

    http://www.netmag.co.uk/

    The thing I like most is that they are constantly changing their design!

    Nice page ! I love the usage of that table border

    It really look good. Although it will be nice when the customer selects his product to add to his 'cart', you should let him select the currency he's using and it will auto-covert into that currency, so that he doesn't need to bring a calculator next to his computer

    well this one isnt quite what you were asking for Nam but i like http://www.plycon.com

    what i most like is how the shopping is done, not so much the design of th site, but of the shopping. you always get a thumbnail, info, everything...

    I'm not too impressed with that Computer Shop site. It lacks design inspiration! I know that it is aimed at computer buyers as opposed to the general buying public, but still, I think you could base your site around the structure of that site, and I like the middle bit that displays the products, but the navigation is boring and really needs sprucing up! And somebody KILL that pop-up!

    What site are you guys talking about? computershop=computerstop.com? If that so, I agree with Nicky, I don't like that either, the navigation is not really organize, for example, if I want to find specific AMD Durn, I have to scroll the whold cpu/memory link to find it.
