Case Components for a DIY Case

Postposted on Thu Jan 07, 2010 8:57 am

Need some direction on where I could find a supplier for components that are normally found in computer cases. Power Switch, Reset button, and maybe individual components normally found on front panels (such as USB, Firewire, eSata, ect). I would even be willing to make my own power switch and reset button if I could an idea where to get pin connectors for the motherboard headers.

I have search newegg and google and have come up empty. This is likely because I think that I am not asking the right random words and phrases.

I know it would be best just to rob from an old case.. but let us say I don't have this option. Any ideas??
