I need to get a few things... USB external hard drive case among them, and don't know where to look. There are a few near post here but they don't cater to anyone but fresh out of basic privates and don't carry crap.

I'd be willing to drive to STL if the place is open in the evenings (class gets about about 4 most days, I can be changed on on the road by 4:30) but if there is one in Lebanon, Springfield, or Rolla that woudl be even better.

We have a computer shop in downtown Rolla, but I have no idea what they carry. Springfield would be your best bet.

Were you in clothing sales last Tuesday afternoon in civies?

There is a computer shop in the SMSU Bookstore but I forgot what all they sell.

Never mind, found a seller on ebay that would ship to other than my confirmed paypal address.

I can get everything else at the PX, the externel HD case was the hard part.

EPC in Cave Springs. Lots of used stuff and pretty good prices. The down side to them is that that have a "No concealed weapons" sign at the door. Personally I just ignore it since it is nowehere close to a legitimate sign (Size counts on these signs ya know and their sign is so far off what the law requires...)
Cave Springs is near Saint Charles right off of hwy 70.

You need to get a copy of the Post Dispatch for the Stl Area with all the ads. Between Office Max, Office Depot, Best Buy, CompUSA and Circuit City you'll find a great deal on USB2 hard drives and DVD recorders. The adds come out Saturday afternoon for the Sunday paper. A quick shop will have the whole set. Let me know what what you are looking for and I will scout the paper tomorrow. Send ya ad pics if you can handle it. Most of the stuff does have rebate offers. E-mail me at zkllr78@yahoo.com From FLW you should be able to hit Crestwood Plaza area in 2 hours. It's off the 44/270 interchange. Take the Watson Rd exit go about 1 mile you should see all the stores on the right or left.

Newegg is an excellent resource! I built my entire system from them.

Another great place for parts reviews is www.hardocp.com/reviews.html

Good luck!
