well i made the purchases along with CRYSIS: WARHEAD to start off my pc gaming experience.
did make some of the purchases off tigerdirect, cause they have the "no tax as long as you dont live in FL, IL, TX, and NC" policy.

hopefully i learn more about computers and learn how to start over clocking, next paycheck ill looking into switching over to Water Cooling

thanks a lot, helped save me 400+. CyberPower were gonna charge me an extra 200+ in shipping&handling+tax -_-. well you guys didnt really save 400 LOL since its going to a new monitor but i honestly do feel like im getting more/better quality for my money.

thank you everyone =]!!!

New egg doesn't charge tax last time I checked either. I think all online retailers can do that as long as the state you live in doesn't have a law about it.

I think Newegg only charges tax in states that it has locations in. And I think thats only California, New Jersey, and maybe Tennessee.

That's the law man. They are based in Cali so they have to charge sales tax.

Try looking at Tigerdirect for the big stuff as they don't charge California tax.

Or try ebay.

That too. I try to stay away from ebay though. You always get sniped and the only way to beat the sniper's is to pay more than its worth.

I've heard the Antec 1200 isn't bad. But it chalks up to what you like.

Though if you want something really cool, the HAF is awesome.
