Stuck on island, case needed!

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hey guys!

I'm going to be stuck in Hawaii for 3.5 months and I need an atx mid-tower to stick my sig rig in (gutted it and shipped the innards for cheap). The parts are going to be here in a few days and I don't know what to do about a case. What retail stores have a decent selection of cases? Hole in the wall stores here try to rip me off and Newegg doesn't even ship here and Amazon shipping is a little steep.

Any suggestions as to what I should do? Should I suck it up and go with Amazon? Any suggestions would be appreciated. Need good airflow and preferably <$100.

How much is shipping on amazon for cases? The best sub $100 case I can think of is the CM 690 II advanced.

Averaging around $15-$20 for shipping. Not sure how long it's going to take to get here either as most of them don't come directly from Amazon cause of my location.

$15-20? Thats actually fairly reasonable seeing as where the package is going.

Newegg just ripped me for $19.99 shipping on a HAF 932 in the continental 48. lol

Hmm I could get a HAF 912 w/ 1-3 day shipping for $80 shipping included. Think that would work? I love my 932 so I figure a HAF would be a good way to go
