Keep these suggestions coming!
My apologies, being Australian I don't look out for rebates and the such

Also, I'm not really sure how it's more portable than my Antec 900.

Oh haha I can see you carrying your acrylic PC into school, and having some gangsta kid trying to steal it and put it around his Neck as bling.

[QUOTE=mrtn400;3733303]Yeah, my parents are divorced, so I can only use my sig rig 50% of the time./QUOTE]

Same problem. I only go to my dad's house every other weekend, but after a few weeks on an old AMD build he did a few years back, I decided to start lugging my rig around.

Yes, you heard right, my dad is a builder/serious gamer.

The cheapest one I see at Newegg is $159.99 after MIRs, and has the stock 1 slot cooler. Also it's from ECS, and with only one review I don't feel safe buying it.

I'll look at some other sites though.

well if you're going to build the worlds happiest computer you have a start.

Heres a couple ideas. For a computer like this. Find a case for free. Or use a piece of wood to attach your motherboard too. Who needs a case. Save your self the couple extra bucks. Second. Don't buy fans from new egg. you can get them from other stores online for 5 or 6 120 mm for like 10 including shipping. and a 400 W power supply, who buys one of those. I got a 500w. I'll give it to you just for showing up at myhouse. I mean if you wanna pinch those pennies. look on craigslist. Not newegg.
