If the Cosmos ain't a full tower, I don't know what is. But I was expecting to pay around $100. Shop around.

Was referred to a place near my house, going to give them a call tomorrow, hope the prices aren't too ridiculous.

Assuming they do a good job price doesn't matter to me under the $300 range, I imagine it gets cheaper if I do it in a fairly common(like black) colour right?

Here's hoping these guys will actually give me a quote unlike those fools in Stittsville.

Heyyyy, wait a minute, aren't you building like a $10,000 supercomputer or something? What's a couple hundred dollars for powder coating????
LOL

The end results from powder coating are 10 times more durable than paint, and you'd be surprised how easily paint gets scratched inside a case....


Shh! Stop persuading me to spend even more money on it! The computer I've planned out is already expensive (still room to improve), and I'm trying not to jack the cost up another $1000 or so. It's hard!

I mean, just joining this forum alone made me add watercooling. . .
