What exactly are you going to be using this for? Its going to be quite slow. Just use the hard drive bays that mount in the 5.25 drive spot.

yeah u should definitely rethink your choices of components as you could have a much better performing pc for possibly less than you would be spending here that would work much better with whatever you plan on doin be it video editing or gaming or whatever else.

Default ugh...

Well if you didn't buy these parts yet....DONT!. You may have alot of space for your video editing but its not gonna run well...AT ALL.

i did a quick search on newegg to spend around $2000

AMD Athlon 64 3400+ 1MB L2 = $305
ASUS "K8N-E Deluxe" NVIDIA nForce3 Chipset = $146
2X Western Digital 200GB 7200RPM SATA ($131)x2 = $262
Corsair XMS Extreme Memory Speed Series (2 x 1GB) = $545

thats $1258 right there for a TOP of the line PC and you need your video card, case, power supply, and some fans, you can get all that for way under $750. I didnt get that stuff because its based on personal preference and needs for the video card and case.

I like people trying to build their own PC, but do some research before you start, if you did buy those parts, well, live and learn.

Check this thread http://www.techist.com/showthread.php?threadid=23644 and look at my pc. You will notice you only see the round ide cables. I got some sleeving and looked at it, and then said forget it i just hide em.
