Apevia X-DREAMER3-BK


Now it is $59.99 not including shipping. But it is all black inside, Botom mount PSU. Cut a few Cabla Management holes and I think this case has some definate potential for a Girl Gamer. Not to mention its not entirely pink.

There is a reason its always " Newegg Newegg Newegg" as you stated.
1. Great customer service.
2. FAST SHIPPING

It's not a window, but it's mesh.... it's all black except the griffin etched in the side panel, but the In Win Griffin has a massive side fan

Again Mesh rather than a window, the Raidmax Atlas
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811156247

And the sigma Luna has a blue led fan you'd need to replace, but has a window and is pretty much completely black

Actually my experience with newegg has been a little on the sub par side. I paid for overnight shipping on my GT240 back about a year agon and it took 5 dyas to get to me. When I order from TD I don't have to pay extra for overnight shipping. If I order something before Noon I get it the next day by 5 pm. Never had an issue with their customer service either. I guess it all comes down to location and personal preference. Newegg ships out of California while TD ships out of Chicago. So with the OP being in New York perhaps TD is the better choice? I dunno. Chock it up to personal Experience I guess.

@OP. The NZXT Gamma is definatley a superb case for the money to be sure. Apevia is considered to be Budget quality. I offer the 2 Apevia choices as options for that price point even though the Gamma beats them hands down on a few features. I figured that your sister would appreciate the light pink touch of the Apevia case.

It sucks that it took 5 days to get it but is it newegg's fault or UPS? TD prices usually are higher than newegg's on most things, I almost never buy anything from them I wish bing cashback was still around, it made buying from TD a viable option. Newegg ships from NJ and TN also.

I was gonna mention the fact that they ship from TN and NJ; I also think they have warehouses in other places for items that don't get ordered as much. But TD is an ok site if you can catch a good deal there; they just don't offer free shipping as much as newegg as I've seen; and since TD has some of its resources in GA, I have to pay taxes, so I avoid their site if I can lol
