Well the best mobo for OC'ing the 165 is probably the Ultra-D I reccomened.


G.SKILL DDR500 ram that I showed you and OCZ Platnium DDR500 is about the best ram you can get too.

:sigh: Im not trying to be mean but you obviously dont get it...

A case isnt like a component where one is much better then the other, or you pay more for better.....to the extent.

Say if you asked the same question for a cpu, whats the best bang for buck, almost evreyone would say opty 165. Get it?

So in reality, your looking for a case that suits you and your budget.

Anything mid tower and up is what your looking for, and Side panel window is optional.

the builds already posted are very good for your average OC'er. take Lord's advice on the ram/mobo. the only thing left for you to decide are the cd/dvd drives,speakers,lcd etc.. someone here should give you a recommendation to a great lcd for ur price range if asked.
