my dilema is im only getting about 140 bucks because i have to save half of it for a car, so i dotn kno what comnponet to buy first, i was thinking ram because its on special, but at teh same time i was also thinking psu, because i can use that now. something else i was thinking abotu was this
http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...anufacture=AMD
NCIX.com - Buy Sunbeam Tuniq Tower 120 S754 S939 S940 S478 LGA775 Heatpipe Cooler 120MM Fan CPU Heatsink - T-120 In Canada. my case temps at 21 degress celcius right now, on medium fan settings, so im sure it is sufficient enuf for cooloing,
but im not sure my case will fit the tuniq, here is my case 3DXtreme - Taking Hardware To The Xtreme... , or should i upgrade anyway, and if so id like to get this full tower Newegg.com - XCLIO A380BK Fully Black High Gloss Finish SECC 1.0mm thickness ATX Full Tower Computer Case - Retail
my last problem is where can i order this case from in canada.

what do you guys think i should do?

yes... get the Black Edition 5000+ (where did you see that? was it cuz i recommended it )

i don't trust that PSU, stupid OCZ GamexSteam Ripple prone SOB

try to get a Corsair 520 or something with a evga 590 or Foxconn 590 or upgrade to an Asus M2N-SLi Deluxe

im not sure im even buying that heat sink, and i like the 700w because i wana sli or go ultra and its cheap, i would have gotten the 620 but its way to pricey for me, and will the tuniq fit my current mid tower? as im only getting the tuniq if i get the black edition. and what is riple exacly?

no no i dont own an artic freezer pro, but i can pick one up for 20 bucks if need be, i just liek the tuniq lol, and im trying to stay under 600 dollars with out a case.

put all of it towards a car. tbh you have a nice little setup there, and you should save and get a sweet car now rather then a meh car and a sweet computer.

but the black edition is sick so get that if your gonna get pc stuff.
