Rosewill CHALLENGER Black Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case, this ones cheapest on New Egg, Amazon is more expensive and eBay has them at "New Other" for $10 less... meaning it's a returned model <.< so that means missing screws or scratches [no thanks imo]
post #18 of 28
My h100 was 20$ cheaper as was my intel 3820, and amazon has a stellar rma process should you have to return something.. Newegg used to be the only place id buy hardware but now I always check amazon first

I need to do that my self as well, New Egg has some great deals but the mail in rebates worry me, that means I need more cash down >.> and I might not be able to get more cash DOWN
