Maybe you should check out a new case at Newegg.com. They have the best prices in the world I think.

www.tigerdirect.com/ is still cheaper, not to mention if I order before 6pm, I get it the next day with UPS ground. Custom.. you may have the same, also. Maybe two days, three at most.

I just ordered new components to build a AMD 3300 system and used www.pricewatch.com to find all the parts. Found sweet prices from several different retailers.

Wow thats really good. I have the AMD 2500 (1.83ghz) overclocked to 1.95ghz, then tweaked the holy heck out of everything else I could. Performs great but my case temps are generally around 32* and CPU temps around 60* with full load, 50* at idle. Including my cpu fan I have 7 in all. I have a Gigabyte board though, and I'm told that ours read temps a few degrees higher than others would.

On the lines of manufacturers doing weird things. I got the Radeon 9200 256meg video card and it was interesting that it didn't come with a cooling fan, just a heatsink. Playing video games on their highest setting would cause weird errors. Just to see I rigged up a fan over the heatsink and now I can play on their highest setting with no problems. Odd they didn't test for that.

You should get an aftermarket heatsink for that CPU, preferably something with a copper base. I have a Thermalright SP97 which is made of solid copper and has 3 heatpipes so it cools my processor fairly well. My computer is so dusty right now though because I am being extremely lazy for some reason and now I want a new case.

I'd love to get an aftermarket piece, only issue is there is limited space around the processor due to capacitor placement. Its using a stocker designed for a 3200 though, and that barely fits. When I got the board I opened it up in the shop and I went around trying different heatsinks, nothing fit. I'm sure I could find something but I'd like to know it fits before buying it.

edit: nm, no pic then haha
