    Hi guys.

    Can you recommend me websites where I can buy electronic components with good prices.

    The online stores should sell at least:
    - Resistors, Variable resistors, LDR (Light Dependent Resistors)
    - Capacitors, Diodes, transistors, MOSFETs.
    - LEDs
    - Alligator clips
    - Breadboards
    - 9V battery clips
    - Microcontrollers (Atmel family and PIC family)
    - Microcontroller programmers
    - Integrated circuits (4000 series, 74 series, NE555, etc)
    - Displays (LCD, 7 segment, etc)
    - Wires (for breadboard, etc)
    - Sensors

    It will help if the store ships with DHL.

    Thank you.

    It'd help if we knew where you were.
    The other thing, is if you need a well-stocked inventory, or just surplus items.
    In U.S.:
    MCM Electronics
    Jameco
    Electronics Express
    Mouser
    All Electronics Corp.
    Plenty of others. They'll all put you on their mailing list if you want a print catalog too.
    You should get a good list from others on this website.

    Try RS Components in the UK, you won't find a better supplier anywhere across the globe ! Their website is

    http://www.rswww.co.uk


    They stock everything you want in your list and a great deal more too. They will ship international by DHL, you couldn't wish for better !

    Good luck
    Keith :)

    Farnell are comparable to RS, it's swings and roundabouts really but I favour RS because the Farnell site is very difficult to navigate and their search engine is a nightmare to use. Also RS don't charge for shipping even if you order 1 resistor ! Farnell have a minimum order charge which I think is £25 and they also charge for shipping.

    Check http://futurlec.com I have found their prices very reasonable. Their freight charges to my part of the world were not too bad either. ymmv

    Thanks for all your replies.

    I found these stores appropriate to my location:
    - Digi-key
    - Futurlec

    Digi-key is richer in components compared to Futurlec. However, Futurlec has nice shipping options at very good rates.

    The components prices are pretty much good at both stores.

    Thank you guys.
