apokalipse is right. drop to the 4400+, its still incredibly powerful and with a relatively small overclock (even on stock cooling) can exceed the performance of the 4800+. for the price difference you could get a 7800gt.

yes, i would say downgrade processor and definitely upgrade the video card. Drop the water cooler, even if you decided to make a whole water cooling sytem i still say drop it and pick up a real block like a storm or tdx. Like the others said, pick up a 7800GT and downgrade you processor.

Also, the Super lan boy is a great case for lan parties, but the aluminum is somewhat thin. Im not sure if sticking a handle on the case would warp the metal somewhat if you carried it around.
