Whether you are opting to start your very own computer retail chain, or if you happen to have techie friends and you wish to give them computer parts as gifts this coming Christmas season, then it is best for you to find a place where you can buy wholesale computer parts. Buying in wholesale can save you a lot of money, as the rule of "cheaper by the dozen" generally applies. Besides, buying wholesale computer parts mean you will have to directly get from manufacturers and dealers, so you will really have them for the lowest price you can get. However, there is a catch. You must meet a minimum number of pieces before you can buy wholesale computer parts. Never the less, once you meet this requirement, you will be able to buy in wholesale. But how exactly do you do it? Here are three easy steps you can take.

1. Find a distributor. If you know someone who happens to be updated when it comes to locating computer parts manufacturers, ask them to help you. Alternatively, if you happen to live where there aren't many manufacturers around, you can just go to the internet. Just type "wholesale computer" on your favorite search engine and you will immediately be directed to almost a million website choices. Some of these sites are evertek.com, wholesalecomputer.com, outletpc.com and chinavasion.com.

2. Determine your budget and your needed pieces. Like I said, each of these distributors will have a minimum pieces required before you can order from them. Make sure your distributor of choice will be able to accommodate your number of orders. Additionally, you may like to check their prices and the quality of their products. These are very delicate pieces that you will attach to computers, you might not want to buy easy-to-be-damaged pieces.

3. Arrange for shipment and payment. Once you made the deal, make sure you can pay for your orders. If you negotiated online, make sure that you have the means to transfer your funds through your PayPal or credit card account.

These are the things you need to do to be able to buy wholesale computer parts. If you are going for a business venture, it would help if you choose a manufacturer to be your steady partner. This way, they'll give you more discounts for your wholesale computer parts purchases.
