Hear, hear. I'm more or less on the same side. For my TH10A I would have to pay pretty much as paid in the US. Including CL paint-job ($230), tons of options, couple not really required additions (hindsight is wonderful thing biggrin.gif), S&H ($387), customs and VAT there is minimal difference between shipping it directly from CL or from GR. Of course less paper work and stuff, but even funnier shipping box standard black case from PPCS to EU is much cheaper because they are based on East Coast and they provide DHL service which is about 50% cheaper than Fedex (while F is still ~40% cheaper than shipping it from California) not to mention idiotically expensive UPS.

And believe me I know very well that normal rates for S&H end on Germany or old-EU bloc countries, anyplace else in Europe [or world for that matter] and shipping companies have absolute field-day how to screw you over tenfolds. If they could they would charge for air you breath.

Hm funny thing. I didnt compare all the prices, but mine S3 came out way cheaper. Also SMA8 would be cheaper, too. Maybe he made some kind of error in pricing.

Did you make sure all the settings where the same?
When I checked, so did it seems that it auto selected some options for you.

But natuarly, so will the price be a little higher, as gamingrigs.de will also has to make money.

I know you said the same option, but since it was so hugh price difference, so did I ask. Specially since when I checked, so did it do a lot of choices for me (like adding I/O option).

Does anybody know if it is a requirement to have the PSU mount bracket thing installed if mounting the PSU at the bottom? I am thinking I am probably going to stick a second PSU inside the case and know that I need the bracket for mounting up top. Just need to know if I need another bracket or not.

I do not use the brackets the PSU's each 1500 watts are fine without them but it is a personal choice

Cool, thanks. I will try it each way up top and see which I like best.

If the 980ti bios mods can really push them to 425W each then I am going to need a second PSU. Two 1600s should do it. Now to find a bigger UPS.
