Thanks for the replys guys,
I ended up going with the pc p&c based on some good reviews, what you all said about the brand and the 10.00 rebate not that the rebate was a game changer. Since I had the whole htpc torn down I decided to upgrade my apevia case to the fractal node 605. I was also looking at the silverstone 08. I thought long and hard about it. I usually do not buy cases that have any kind of flip down flap, they usually end up breaking at some time or another. I really liked the look of the case and I do not use a optical drive in my htpc. I have a standalone 3d player and do all my encoding on my desktop.
One good thing about living fairly close to a new egg distribution center is I get my stuff the next day. Ordered it yesterday and it's out for delivery today. I hope the wife understands that when your power supply goes it usually takes the on off switch to the case with it,, winks.
Thanks for all your help
