MSi's looks good because of extra sound ports and pci slot, even though ASUS's has higher FSB for future upgrades. But in general, no body upgrades a good comp that they've built, by that time, a newer one would be more favorable.

I have the P5N-E SLI and it's pretty good. I don't know much about the SLI-FI. I know the platinum one is pretty good. So what's your new budget?

actually i got a case when i went to a garage sale.. its ASPIRE TURBO X-DREAMER CASE the PSU is a: CoolerMaster eXtreme Power 600 Watts... i checked to see if he was lying and i demanded he open it up on the spot.... and he was telling the truth and i got it for 30$ nice deal eh? so no case necessary... just a mobo, cpu, heatsink, video card, hard drive, and the optical drives....
