TigerDirect says that both its desktop and mobile versions of the site accept the virtual currency, and has even listed a handy getting started guide to Bitcoin payments and even Bitcoin mining at the source link provided below. "With individuals building their own high-powered PCs with parts offered on our site to mine Bitcoins, it's a logical fit."
