  1. wow... that's expensive... for that price you could be getting a GTS... forgot how atm, though
  2. You are spending to much and not getting enough. $140 for a case with one fan? Look at the Antec 900 or something like it. Here's a P182 for $70 after MIR;

    Can't recall reading anything about the PSU, but you can get a very good 750 watter with a lot less bling for about half that.

    Take a look at these coolers, one even has an led fan, which does nothing as far as keeping things cool. It does look cool though.
    You can get the one without the led here alot cheaper after MIR;
  3. with the mail in rebate its $189.99...if you know where i can get a 8800gts for that let me know...also the quad heat pipes rock ratings were cool and
  4. i'm buying the case for the 2 x 250 fans on the side i plan on putting sythe's in the other spot i dont mind the extra cash this is the airflow i'm looking for i think
