Like I said, gfx card is most important. You'd be better off going with an X2 3800+ or 4200+ and getting a GTX with teh saved money.

If you want a more professional looking case look at Lian Li and Silverstone.

If you want a more modded gamer look, try Aspire, Thermaltake, or Cooler Master.

Wow, that case is a monster! Could easily house a water cooling setup.

If you like that case go with it. Just make sure it will fit on your desk first. lol

For your DVD burner, I'd get the 3540A not the 3550A.

The rest looks good. If you want to save a little money you could get the 3800+ instead of the 4200+. They are the same CPU except the 4200 is .2GHz faster. You could just overclock the 3800+ to that speed but it's up to you.

I don't have aim sorry. Just get the 3800+ if you don't want to spend the extra for the 4200+. There isn't much of a difference between them and if you learn how to overclock you can make them identical.

BTW, I'm talking about the X2 3800+ dual core here just in case that wasn't made obvious.
