I use Graybar for the most part.  If it's something small or easy, MicroCenter probably has it, but when I need a couple thousand feet of cat[5|5e|6|whatever], a bag of 500 cable ties, a box RJ-48s, etc., it's straight to Graybar.  If it's not already on the shelf they can get it quick and their pricing is pretty good.
