The GTS is the same size as any other card... I have one, and it is tight yes, but will fit in any Mid tower case... and I have a drive directly in front of it. I have the PCIe cable bent upward, but yes it does fit... the GTX however adds the extra room... so yes you need a full tower or nothing in front of it.

So saying they had to pull out the fans is bull... maybe if they had all the drive bays full and needed the room maybe... but I don't take those reviews too serious...

Yes I'm well aware of the price tag. I put together all my studio pc's, 9 counting this current one, An 10 after I get done building this gaming rig.

Money really isn't a issue. I dropped over 30K on my DJ Rig alone. (http://www.djnaviss.com) I want my gaming to be fun for my pass time.
Computer's has always been my hobby, An Gaming has always been the most fun I can have. I don't intend to go cheap on it.

Again thank you for all your review's, I'm shure I'll be asking many more question's soon.

I like that case! But a 200 MM fan on the side, I don't like... I personally like to show off what's inside my pc's. A trend I love to do. I for shure want a great deal of coolin, But don't want any water cooling stuff.

I'd really like something along the line's of White or Silver? An yes for shure a full tower, I don't want no mini or mid-range tower's.

I was lookin at 2 gig stick's, An Newegg only sell's G.Skill 2 Gig stick's, An personally I think the timing on them is a bit much.

I mostly just run Corsair. Right now in my current gaming rig, I have four 1 Gig Corsair stick's in there. (DDR PC3200) Which I love an much smaller timing.I do however like the idea of maxing out 8 gig's of ram.

See, you are looking at ddr2 ram. it runs at a much higher frequency to match the slower timings. That g skill 2gig sticks are pretty decent, ddr2 800mhz. versus like standard ddr that only runs at 400mhz.

Windows can run 4gb. Not like it will give you a error "system error, you have too much ram. Please meet the maximum system requirements before continuing."

That thermaltake armor case is a great case and I am purchasing mine on wednesday You can get that same case without the huge 25cm fan on the side and it will still be a great case with really good cooling.

Am I missing something here? What's wrong with 4 1 gig sticks? If you really want to get the 2 gig sticks, you can change the timings yourself, g.skill is a good brand.

Ok. Thank's for your info. Yeah my current ABit mother board has a max mb of 4 gig's.
I love the idea of 8! Just was wondering about the timing on them stick's.
I wasn't shure if G.Skill was all that great, But as of the time being Newegg only has such brand to buy.
I've used all kind's from Geil; Kingston; Corsair.

I'll give G.Skill a chance if nothing more hit's Newegg's market pior to my buying.


As for cases, I was lookin at this Water Cooled Gigabyte ATX Case.

http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16811233004

Review's? Opinion's? I like the idea of putting in 3 nice 120 MM Fan's.
