Man, that's a fact. Our wholesaler sells cases with (crap) 250 watt power
supplies for US$20, 250 watt (crap) power supplies by themselves for $19, and
(crap) replacement fans for $15.

Can anyone provide a clue as to why this is so? Basic economics suggests
that it costs a *lot* more to produce a case w/psu than a psu alone --
likewise for the psu vs. the fan . . .
