Wow shrap! Thanks a lot!

I made a comp on newegg.com/xoxide.com (newegg had no water cooling units).

A few things...

I do not need a monitor and that is about it. My current keyboard is ok and my speakers still work, but they are both old. My keyboard is full of crap and my speakers I can tell are going to die soon.
Also, I am looking for a quiet comp for 2 reasons. 1 I want to be able to sleep and hang out in a room with friends without it getting in the way, 2; it will be spending its first year in a college dormroom, and I want my roommate to be impressed, not annoyed with my hardware
I have also setlled on a black hardware/blue LED light system. I have always had ugly comps, this one I want to look purdy.

Damn, shrapnill. I'd never heard of Lian-Li cases before. I always bought the cheapest POS I could find.

I checked another site, pricegrabber.com, and found some things a little cheaper. I use this site whenever I need to find parts, they check newegg and a lot of other sites for prices.

Downside to using this site is that you're buying from a lot of different companies, not just one or two places like you're talking about. Prices are all american dollars without shipping.

Lian-Li PC-61 case $98.90

Liteon 16x DVD-ROM $25

Hitachi 120 GB IDE, 8 MB cache $82

Well, the PC-61 is only like 6 bucks more at newegg and a Hitachi is always gonna be cheaper than a Seagate. Cos its crap.

Plus, newegg fooking rules. Best CS on the planet (falcon northwest in close second) and they ship cheaper and faster than ANYONE else. Yaknow that $2100 order I placed? Ordered 2pm tuesday, shipped 8pm wednesday and Im betting its on my porch by monday at the latest. FOR OVER TWO GRAND IN PC PARTS! Thats insanity. If newegg has it, I buy from them. Period. I could care less if I get it $6 cheaper somewhere else, thats how much I love this company.

BTW Orb, Im sorry I ditched on the info, Ill post it soon. Ive got it configured, just a hassle to deal with posting so much. Tons of editing involved and I HATE editing.

Ill hook it up soon, if you still want it that is.
System specs? Lets just get down to it people:

My penis is bigger than yours.
