Is there (or will there ever be) an online computer hardware shop that will take BTC? To make this harder, will it ship to the EU?

For me to use bitcoin frequently it needs to allow me to buy stuff that fulfills the three basic human needs: The need for computer hardware, the need for computer games, the need for junk food and unhealthy beverages and the need to pay the internet/electricity bills. OK that's four or five but who's counting.

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Server-assisted clients like blockchain.info rely on centralized servers to do their network verification for them. Although the server can't steal the client's bitcoins directly, it can easily execute double-spending-style attacks against the client.

memorydealer.com also sells computer hardware.  He will sell anything that currently sells on newegg, as he can get it all from his own supplier and price it at least somewhat competitively.

I'm negotiating a few purchases that will add common mining gear to the bitmunchies inventory.  Energy drinks your mining setup, if you will.  So far I'm looking at carrying:

Radeon HD 5970
High watt PSU
Fans
Motherboards?

I have to import them, though, so it will take me a while to work through the legal hooha.  In the meanwhile, PM me any products you'd like to see.

Speaking of computer hardware, I myself would like to start mining from home on my own. I know with the next few difficulty increases I will mine less and less but I also need/want new components for my gaming rig.

I don't know as of yet which motherboard can take 2 Video cards and am planning on getting 2 ATI 5770's. Ram I only want As cheap as I can get and a good enough PSU.

Any recomendations?

It's a modest rig that will output around 360Mh/s. You can mash up something from this list https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Mining_rig.
