Nice pick on components...but just get the 32bit version of XP. The 64bit version of XP, that you chose, lacks compatibility with drivers.

The Thermaltake Soprano looks better out the three.

I have the Xon-102...blue version and all. It is an excellent case for the money. The airflow is great and the case is quite large. I recommend it.

The soprano does look nice though, but i'm just saying my Xon-102 works great.
