Could you be thinking of http://www.half.com? I've gotten great buys there, albeit not for computer books.
You can also check http://www.bookfinder.com to locate who is selling a book you want -- and the condition, price, etc. It is almost funny to buy a mint condition / as new hardcover book with a perfect dust jacket for 1/4th the price someone else wants for a damaged paperback <g>.
I like Bestbookbuys.com for a comparison site. It usually shows Books A Million as the best price (club price) for general books, and BookPool for tech books, but I've saved money by checking. And the $5 for a Books A Million membership was worth it -- I recouped the cost in my first order.
