Bigfoot Computers mostly sells cooling parts, not really that much
general purpose computer stuff.  Too many other places already sell that
stuff.  Check their website and you will see.

Makes you wonder if they don't build their systems properly.  AMD has
pretty simple requriements on power supply and cooling on their web site
and generic cheap 300W power supplies may just not be good enough for a
stable system.  Of course the end user that just looks at price doesn't
know that.

It's cheaper and they like selling to the people that look at price
