Anyone know of any sites that offer a better search capability than newegg? I'm finding that only being able to select one value for each field rather than a range or starting point is getting restrictive and annoying.

For example, cases. Let's say I want a case with AT LEAST two internal 3.5" drive slots. I can only search for 2, 3, 4, etc individually, not 2+.

Bonus if your site has better prices, too

I have the same issue with Newegg, however it is still the best that I have found. You just have to think carefully about your power searches and also understand that sometimes the product data is not complete so your search may miss items. Even so, I have not found any other site that is as good at power searches or provides as many photos and product details as Newegg.

Have you tried Newegg's Power Search feature? Sounds to me you're just using the Guided Search.

What do you mean by individually? Why can't you just select all those checkboxes?

(Advanced search, actually :P ) Thanks for the heads up though, I completely overlooked the power search option!

Indeed between the Power Search, the extensive product photos, the usually accurate technical details, and the sometimes helpful customer reviews there is no better site. I only wish they carried more items. It is usually the first place I look, and I am disappointed when they do not have what I need.
