    a case is something you need to see, really. Check local shops.

    otherwise, what type of case are you looking for?

    Newegg is one of Hunderds of Thousands of places online to buy parts... Search the web my friend... I use www.directron.com just because they are not too far from my house and I can save on shipping by picking the items up...

    You might find a case that you like here.

    Just look for Antec cases - they don't get any better than that. High quality cases with the world's best PSU's (the true-powers are l33t).

    Unless of course your 14 years old and think having a techno party inside your case is "cool".

    wow, I completely disagree with everything TekDragon said. There are MANY cases that are much higher quality than Antec. Silverstone and Lian Li come to mind!

    And as for the worlds-best PSU that's absolute rubbish! I think everyone will agree that PC Power & Cooling has consistantly made the worlds-best PSU... With Sparkle, Enermax, Fortron, and OCZ pulling close behind.

    I'd go with a Lian-Li but I'm personally biased.

    PSU I went with an Antec True Blue 480W

    Some don't like Antec but I like their PSUs. The Antec True480 is a good value at $80.

    for $80 you could get a much better sparkle, tho. I don't see how that's a value. I mean, a better psu for less.

    Which Sparkle would be better than that Antec for under $80? http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProductDesc.asp?description=17-103-489&depa=0
    that is the only one i could find and it has less amps on the 3.3v and 12v, it's also 3% less efficient (estimated im sure). It's only advantage is the 5v rail and it has more watts. Would it really be that much better? I think they would perform about the same really.

    for someone that kept arguing (senselessly, i believe) about the PCP&C then I think you'd appreciate how much better the sparkle is than the antec. And sometimes a few numbers can't describe it.

    I have had to RMA approximately 10% of all antec 550W true-powers that I have sold. I have never had to RMA a sparkle. And the sparkles are put into systems with more demanding configurations.

    It was an honest question, not an argument. Are you incapable of answering my quesion or what?

    You've had lots of luck with Sparkle, I've had lots of luck with Enermax...we are both justified in supporting our fav. brands. I had a question about Antec...and you typed 2 paragraphs without answering it. I'm not trying toa argue...i would jsut like to learn. Anyone else want to try and answer my question?--->"Would it really be that much better? (Sparkle over the same prices Antec)"
