OK, just configured similar systems... on e on cyberpowerpc and one on newegg:
NZXT Nemesis Elite Black Case w/400W P.S.
eVGA nForce4 SLI ATX AMD MoBo
eVGA 7900 GT pcix16
AMD Athalon X2 3800+
Corsair Value Select PC3200 2GB (2x1GB)
2 x 74GB (10,000rpm) Western Digital Raptor
LG 16x DVD+/- R/RW
Coolmaster CPU liquid cooling
mouse + keyboard
No Monitor

Newegg: $1544.91 + 52.79 Shipping/handling - 10 rebates = $1587.70
Cyberpowerpc: $1450 + 65 shipping/handling - 50 rebates - 5% discount = $1408

The cyberpowerpc price includes assembly and professional wiring.... hmmm... which should i go with...

I don't see whats so great in their prices as you said... its not any cheaper than just buying from Newegg.

Anyway, something sounds fishy to me, and this way or another that case sucks lol.

ya, i recommend cyberpowerpc, its cheap and they use good parts, although everysingle part you find there, you can find at www.newegg.com for cheaper, but if you do not want to build, i would really suggest that site

and don't even use a case psu.. change that...

i changed the case to a X-Navigator Server (i've seen great reviews for it) and upgraded the PSU to an Antec TPII-550W for a total after rebates and 5% of 1547.55 (Still cheaper than Newegg!!) so i pretty much get a free psu and sweet case with cyberpowerpc and save 40 bucks

I have heard many bad things about their customer support, but hopefully you won't need it. They make good systems at a great price. I was thinking about buying from them before I decided to build mine. I'm glad I did though. It saved me a little bit of money and the assembly was fun, as well as making me like my PC more since I built it.
