Default Good diy resource shop on the net?

I don't have a radio shack where I live and the local DIY shop charges a fortune. I was wondering if anybody here by chance shops online for components, can you give me some good recommendations of sites. Fast shipping and low rates are always appreciated.

The best one I can recommend and also the cheapest is taking out parts from old electronics you don't use, or which are broken. I never have to buy components when I thinker around .

Thanks jvc, I was looking for a site that sells more specialized stuff like anything from capacitors to micro controllers, but there are some interesting links there .

Parts Express (1st link) should have that stuff, as well as Radio Shack online.

Mouser Electronics and Digi Key are two of the largest online retailers and distributors in the USA. Far better sources than Parts Express and Radio Shack for a lot of components. You have to do a little more homework to figure out what to buy but they are the gold standard when it comes to finding DIY parts. Both have web sites. Just search for them. There are other smaller outfits that you can find by picking up a copy of a current electronics magazine at your favorite bookstore.
