Neweggs shipping is about as low as it gets :/.

as for tigerdirect I wouldn't reccomend them.. Piss poor customer serv and 1/2 the time their rebates never come.

take a look at for a case and whatever else they might have. I got my case there and they have a good rating.
I\'m happy with it.

NewEgg all the way. 1/2 NewEgg's inventory is free or discounted shipping anyway. The case is prolly whats heaping up your shipping. But TigerDirect.... whew, don't even get me started. I live by an actual outlet store. EMPLOYEES DONT EVEN HELP YOU! And some items I bought for my comp. Had like 50$ and up rebates. Yea, they never came. Don't buy from Tiger, stick with newegg. You'll stay happy.
