A SG09/SG10 is as small as it goes with Matx or a Bitfenix Phenom

I can understand your feelings on that. Why is the SG08 $199 everywhere I look when compared to some of these other cases in its class? That is quite expensive.

It looks like my Fry's does not have the SG09 in stock, so I am thinking of maybe just taking the easier road here and either getting it on Newegg or just going with the SG10 and then just selling my GD08 since there will be no need for it.

Half the price is because it comes with a fairly decent 600W bronze PSU. Also the front panel is half inch thick anodised aluminium which probably adds to it.

Thanks, well that explains the cost then.

The Node 304 is now $54 at Newegg, that is very tempting. LOL!
