Last I checked you can get that AMD 3200+ cpu cheaper and with 2 day free shipping at

Like the mobo and the case seems fine but I am always suspect of PSUs that come with any case. The impotant thing is does the PSU deliver 30A on its 12v. rail.

Since i have never ordered pc componets on the net, how does it work, should I get all from newegg? or some from them and some from tigerdirect and some from zipzoomfly? Wont I end up paying alot more in shipping if that is the case?
