for your computer mobo, the 6 gigs is a waste... its triple channel, your cpu is double, plus 6 gigs is a bit overkill for most of us. 4gigs will do just fine.

The rrest is good.

I and many others here love the CoolerMaster HAF series. I own the 922. I heard the 923 is sweet as well.

I'll check it out.
I don't wanna sound dumb or anything, I'm still pickin' up on puttin computers together, but would it fit my build? ^

Also, Win 7 Home Premium 64bit or Win 7 Ultimate 64bit? Not sure if I needed to get the OEM though.

And, instead of the ram above what about this?
Newegg.com - G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F3-10600CL9D-2GBNQ

Cases are vary personal choices, as you have to look at it every day, not us...

Best thing is go on newegg, choose a couple you like, and post them up.

Go plain old 64 bit Win7... rest is overkill, OEM is the cheapst... Theres a sticky on here about oem vs retail.

Ram looks god, but i'm ram dumb.

Any ATX board would fit in a mid-tower. ATX is the most common.

I would spend a little more and get RAM with heatsinks. Get this: Newegg.com - Kingston HyperX 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 Desktop Memory Model KHX1333C7D3K3/6GX
