I need to buy parts online. They have to ship to Canada, and not require a credit card to buy. All I have is a debit card, so they need to take that or cash. ANyone know somewhere good?

Try Ebay. Some salespeople may let you buy the way you want to.

the best place ive come across is www.pricewatch.com You can get good deals that are often cheaper than ebay. when listing the price for the product it also combines in shipping which is a nice touch. I cant help you on the no credit card thing but i built my pc through ebay and pricewatch.

Celebratory

although i never bought anything from it, try overstock.com. I'm not really sure if they have hardware, but for cheap, you might be able to get a system and scrap it f/ parts.
