That case would do admirably. They make really good cases. Might I suggest some of the Thermaltake cases as well? They fall within your price range, and are good sturdy cases with good ventilation.

You can't use DDR2 RAM with a Socket 939 motherboard.

I agree don't get the Biostar card. Get this instead ($170): http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130283

And get either the RAM that massacreinfallx suggested or get this ($113): http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145449

Definatly not. Its common sense. Like Zipzoomfly is going to give lower prices than newegg and free shipping. NOT. They have higher prices to compensate for shipping. I bought stuff off of newegg for $245 when on zipzoomfly it was like $260. A majority of zipzoomfly's products are more expensive.

actually i just checked it out and your right, but in my experiences there are quite a few items on zipzoomfly that ARE cheaper then newegg. its just the specific item, it depends.
