Where can you buy headers and which websites are reliable?

I typically buy that kind of thing at Mouser.com
Digikey is another popular option.

Be prepared to be overwhelmed.
I get paid to play with robots - can't beat that with a stick.

I usually pick them up at Fry's. Probably more expensive than Digikey, but no shipping and I get them now.

Sparkfun is reliable as well.

I'd recommend digikey or mouser though, and buy header pins + housings as well.  And wire is good, too - I was happy with buying this wire, and it should last me quite a few years...
