I've had good experiences with pricegrabber.com (similar to pricewatch,
but better track of stock and they give you "bottomline" price estimates
including shipping and tax). 

Just bought an IBM laptop drive (20gb) from Synapsis in Vancouver BC
(personal friend who happens to be a PC reseller) and even with
international priority overnight saturday-delivery shipping (yeah, I felt
impatient; atill waiting for the 512MB memory upgrade for my laptop from
Crucial) he still had the best price. You can email him at
sales at synapsis.ca and tell him I sent you (I don't get a commission or
anything, just a frequently satisfied customer and friend). The Canadian
exchange rate is great, and hard drive imports from Canada should still be
duty free.
