stingerhs advised:
another advantage is that you can save yourself a pretty penny if you're willing to shop around for your parts rather than getting everything from one source.
Maybe so if you're shopping in person... but online I've found the multiple shipping costs eat into any savings very quickly. Plus the intangibles of having track multiple packages on their way to your home, submitting your credit card at multiple sites, plus (as you said) varying degrees of tech support, possibly having to sort through the return policies of each vendor.
