No problem, but first how much do you want to spend. Their are extremely great cards at Newegg. So just tell us your price limit and we can help alot.

For a case i can suggest alot of great ones. For around 115-150, you can get top of the line cases. Here are my personal suggestions, i hope they help.

Well I don't want to put my whole life savings into it...but I want something that will last for a long time and I can build on in the future. For example for a mother board I want something that supports the fastest ram and all the other extra's...you know what I mean. And for a video card I want something better then my 5200 FX 128MB nivida (AGP) its a decent card but theres new cards out there that have better specs and a real nice picture

Well a price limit would help, such as a amount you can affored to spend. Since you do alot of gaming something good should be needed. I suggest a 6600 GT.

Since your doing alot of gaming why do you want a Intel? AMD are ideal for gaming, and they cost alot less for alot more gaming proformance.
