haha I see you live around me somewhere! It was the micro center in westmont I am all the way in algonquin. Lol I feel guilty! Must be old age or something. Either way I am just going to bring it to his attention. But I am sure he will prolly just tell me someone up front is a retard and forget about it.
How is the MicroCenter in IL? When I go home in the summers, I'll be using that MC. Luckily theres one pretty close to school out here--and seeing as I have to pay tax anyways at the egg/mwave/most places (yay cali), I just prefer getting my stuff today rather than in a few days as well.
Don't feel bad about the case--you had them recheck everything and were an honest consumer. If anything, that was karma repaying you already--you'll be fine. You bought that warranty anyways which is just milk for MC, because if your parts break within 30 days they have to exchange them anyways (warranty or not), and if they don't break in 30, they probably won't break and you'll sell the rig before that happens.
Only tip I can say is: enjoy that blizzard, heard from family that you guys will get hit really hard tomorrow and remember to have good cable management and enjoy!
