Guilt Trip after purchase

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I'm starting the purchase for my new computer. I set my budget at 900, but it just goes up and up. The rest of the parts I'm waiting for the prices to drop a little, so I'll purchase them after Christmas probably. Today I just couldn't stand it anymore....and I bought this:

The va8003bws, armor with the big blower on the side.

My order is still being processed so I can probably still cancel, is there any cases that's cheaper and better than this? lol. I paid about 171 after shipping and tax (live in Cali, damn all the stores are in Cali)

I like how it has a bunch of fans, review says they are quiet. I plan to get a conroe e6300 rig and overclock it. The cpu fan will be big typhoon and planning to get
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835116018 or
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835108072

to go on the Northbridge of the ds3 because I plan to oc to 3.0 ghz.

arg, the purchase looks so good yet so bad so bad.....

Just pick up a coolermaster centurion, it's dirt cheap and is a great case, one less guilt trip for you.

Consider this for a NB, if it fits your config that is $20

Thermalright has a compatability chart, but not all MBs are listed and may require a little measuring to confirm it will fit. You can use it without a fan but you may add one to it.

I think it's butt ugly, but that's just me. The Armor is a great case, and I think it's worth the price, but it is expensive.

First off, if you dont do anything, you will be very happy with the Armor. I have never used one myself, but everyone who has loves it to death, and it looks very very good.

Secodly, when it comes to cases, its a lot of personal preferance. If you think you spend to much on the case, then cancel and keep looking. I recently replaced my Antec P180 with a Lian-Li PV-V1200, and it took me WEEKS to deside what case I wanted to get.
