I used the word "hardcore" in the sense that they sell everything you'll need to assemble a computer, right down to wire-gauze filters for the fans in the computer's chassis. They even have special accounts for frequent customers with discounts. My brother has received an honorary discount for a motherboard (my Asus P2B-DS with two CPU slots) because the store did not have any single-CPU models of the motherboard.

So far, I've been to only the Durham branch because it's the closest from my (smarter) brother's work place. In the Summer of 1998, I have bought a CD-ROM, a SCSI cable, a CPU, and a motherboard to be assembled at home. One year after, I have bought two SCSI connectors to connect more peripherals to the SCSI adapter in my motherboard as well as a hard drive fan. The store sells so much stuff, I can still remember what I have bought during my vacation!
