Online Server Hardware Recommendation

I am looking for recommendations for online retailers that supply a good selection of chassis and components for a small server.

Pedestal Case
Hot swap SCSI and SATA enclosures
Good MB selection (intel preferred)
Prefer brand name components like Seagate, Kingston
Easy online configuration
Dependable delivery

Not looking for Dell or HP type of retailers.

I would start with CDW (http://www.cdw.com).  I would then look at CompUSA (http://www.compusa.com) and then start with the various online-only resellers, such as Buy.com (http://www.buy.com).

If you are looking for the cheapest prices, you could go to TechBargains (http://www.techbargains.com) or even PriceGrabber (http://www.pricegrabber.com)

I should have added Tiger Direct right after CDW.

I am looking for stores that sell servers and have online configuration tools that let you customize your system. More on the lines of this


CDW is close but they just don't have that good of a selection. They do have some real pricey Intel stuff, cases and all, but their online configuration is ala carte.

I want a Newegg.com or Directron.com for mid to low end server config. It seems that there are very good websites for desktops and gaming but not many I can find for servers.
