Parts Express is another good one - more geared at the audio DIY scene, but they still have specialty tools and equipment that could prove quite handy for case mods. They're also a great source for cheap wire (they've almost always got a factory buyout of something you can harvest from).

@CR, Action Electronics added

@marcus, I'll go through those links later on and add them to the appropriate categories


@commandercup, If you can provide me with names/links of Canadian stores I'll gladly add them to the list.

I might as well add a category for hardware sites as well; even case modders need to buy hardware

Added a category for PC hardware; any further additions you'd like to see, just LMK.
