Now, just a couple questions about this system:
1. Do you think it would be able to play all of the games that are out today on high settings? If not, what settings would it be able to handle. Just in general.
2. Are the front connectors for that case long? Because in the rig I just built, the front connector cable for all the USB ports and sound and such are too short, and therefore I can't use them. So, do you think the front cable could reach to the ports on the motherboard?
3. What do you think I should charge for building this system?
