You're gonna pay all that money and get that nice computer, and get that ugly ass case? Idk, I guess its taste. But if you are willing to spend 100+ bucks on a case you might as well get something prettier.

That kind of criticism isnt called for. If you don't like it, then recommend something. Don't just say it's ugly. Personally, that case looks pretty good. Lian Li's would be better, but the wave master is a great case.

Nice choice on the 8800GTS. I love eVGA products. You know, I've been eyeing the eVGA 8800GTX. Oh, it's soooo pretty that it blinds my eyes temporarily:

I don't know how much you're getting the 8800GTS for, but 400 sounds about right for that card. The powersupply that you've chosen scares me just a little. How much are you paying for it? I'll see if i can find a better one in the price range so you don't go over your budget.

Sorry, I wasn't trying to bash (like I said its taste). I just meant that you can find incredible cases for the price your paying, and I thought you'd like to know.

its ok. didn't take it as ne thing too bad. thats why i never yelled at ya (hope i didn't come off as it) but i'm paying about 75 for it.

not sure who said it, but no i'm not ordering off the sites, i order through work and get better prices.

Ownage, i'm getting that power supply for $50. may i ask what scares you about it?
