    Lol yeah i did the same at first i bought an antec mid tower case which is very nice for around $100 then when i built my second system i got a case called the


    This case is almost identical to it except on mine the power/reset buttons are a little larger more of an oval shape,and the usb ports/speaker jacks are hidden with a magnetic door.
    "super designer x-window" its a decent case i paid like $70 for but i dont really like it and neither have enough airflow to do any serious Overclocking to without major upgrade to the case which i have no expierience in.So i think the aspire case is a nice way around the modding problem.This will be my first overclocking project should be fun.

    @FastGame-

    Ive been on the hunt for AMD Mobile athlon xp 2600+'s with no luck however i have seen the AMD mobile athlon xp 2800+'s have any expierience with them?I actually am watching an XP-M 2600+ on ebay for $70 and a 2800+ for like $60.Still got like 3-4 days left on bidding so im trying to get a last mintute bid in lol.A local PC store i called said the XP-M 2600+ were like $140 which doesnt sound right since ive seen them average $70-96 on the net.

    Indeed thats why i dont really like ebay.To tell the truth i hate ordering online period im the type of person that likes to see exactly what he's getting and not wait for 3 or so days for it to be shipped im not patient when it comes to waiting on things to arrive.

    Eh but i'll probally end up ordering both the XP-M 2600+ and the ASPIRE case both off newegg.It seems impossible to get either especially the case anywhere in my area.

    Thanks for all the help and info by the way i have a feeling newegg.com will be my new best freind they have any and everything.

    I personally order everything pc related online, because you get the cheapest prices, and i can't find f**k all in the amature pc shops around here that are just here for a quick buck and don't know what they are f**king on about

    The experts are the geeks online!

    gimie's got the right idea. online's the way to buy, you just gotta know where to look... i copy and pasted the below from another thread i posted...


    has anyone suggested going to www.pricegrabber.com first to check out prices and vendors? i do just about all of my online buying there. i check out the vendor reviews, which are supposed to have been submitted by actual buyers, after i find the right price, and have not gotten burnt once. you can check on vendor info, product info, and possibly some product reviews, again, by the buyers. you can search using the filters to narrow down to exactly the product you want or leave the search wide open. you can also sort by popularity, lowest price, even insert your zip code and search for lowest price with the combined total of the product price, tax, and shipping charge. ~s


    we need places like pricegrabber to help us make the most informed decisions. i do agree that newegg is a great place to buy but that there are other places, well-respected places, that one can get comparible prices from. pricegrabber gives them to you. ~s


    Man who say it cannot be done should not interrupt man doing it.

    I buy everything PC hardware related from ebuyer.com and overclockers.co.uk

    And before i decide to buy from those stores, i check out price runner and kelkoo for the best prices around too.

    I've never had such good service in my life, ebuyer has the most amazing prices/range of products, i mean, where else in the UK can you buy a 128mb ATI RADEON 9200SE PCI graphics card for only 31?

    I use to buy my products from a local computer fair, never ever bought from the shops, and now with these big online stores, i get the same cheap prices, delivered straight to my door

    I agree Gimie....prices are good and who could ask for more as far as convenience goes...the only issue there is package safety if your not at home when the delivery is made.

    Just get it shipped to work, or to mom's house. If you cannot, just have it shipped to my work. I will take care of it

    That's the only downside about home delivery, you have to actually be in doors at the time!

    Fortunately, if you build up a trust between some companies they will deliver to your work place

    My work hours at the standard 9-5, so i get the items delivered to my workd

    I've already ordered and recieved a ATI RADEON 9200SE PCI, the card is pretty fast for an PCI

    Plays Unreal II like a dream, i never thought i'd see that from a PCI!
