Sites/forums for PC hardware

Does anyone know of any good sites and/or forums to get advice for computer hardware? i'm in the market for a new pc (as of last night when my HDD started making awful clunking noises and everything shut down). I knowa few sites but i wouldnt mind a larger list.

yeah u-mart is great, that's where i'll be buying most things from. what i need though is links to benchmarks or reviews of the hardware so i can figure out what to buy in the firstplace.

[url="http://bigkid.com.au/2005/02/26/buyer-beware/"]BigKid has a post[/url] about what to watch out for from such bargain basement stores. ie: "Returned Goods attract a 10% restocking fee".
