Sorry it's not on Tigerdirect, but sites like Newegg and NCIX are much better for prices. You can also get a white or orange version of the prodigy if the black version doesn't fit your fancy.

Also, people are probably going to hate for the Foxconn motherboard, but it has great reviews.

It's fine, lol. Tigerdirect probably has the parts, if not I'll just choose a similarly priced item that's good.
