Looks like the only thing I'm still struggling on making a decision on which case I actually want.

I'm torn between

Ultra eTorque ULT33180 Mid-Tower ATX Case - Silver, Front USB, FireWire and Clear Side at TigerDirect.com

and

Newegg.com - Antec Nine Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Computer Cases

for a case.

They're within 20$ of each other, after Instant/Mail-in Rebates, so price isn't the issue. I don't like LEDs, at all, but it comes with the Fans for the Cases. If I get the other, I'd have to choose fans for the front and back, and possibly side?

But, I like the look of the first one the best.

I know it's not much that anyone can help me with here (It's more based on me just deciding which I like best), so I'll throw this out. If I get the First one, that doesn't come with case fans, what case fans should I get that would be quiet, provide sufficient air-flow, and NOT Light up? Also, not cost too much.

Thanks again.

I do have the e-tourque, and its a great case. Its very well built. The 900, isnt all that.

If you want a more silent case though, get this:

Micro Center Online - P180B Advanced Super Mid Tower

It also comes in silver, and is amazing on the inside..look for reviews and youll see.

nice to see im not alone in the world with my tastes :P

And yeah, the P180B is supposed to be amazing, but whats the diff between that and the standard P180 or P182?

I was actually looking very closely at the P180 and P182 back in February when I first decided I wanted to built a new computer.

I just checked, and they've removed it from Newegg, which annoys me. I wanted to get all of my parts from Newegg, or if I couldn't, no more than two places. I don't want them all arriving at different times.

I'll look into both. I think the P182 was the one I liked the best.

EDIT: It's like impossible to find the P182. I tried. Found it in like 3 places. That Microcenter Site, which costs 159+~25$ Shipping, Dell, for 149$, Free Shipping, and egoodz.com (never heard of it) for 119+18 shipping.

Dell says something about "Usually ships in 5-7 days"

I really don't want to wait a week for it to even ship. I'd have all my other things just sitting.

Okay, I've chosen the Processor and Case, and ordered both.

Last question:

Which RAM should I get?

Newegg.com - OCZ Reaper HPC Edition 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory

Or

Newegg.com - G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1000 (PC2 8000) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory

Whichever one I get, I'd like to clock it to PC1066 if possible.

Thanks.
