Why the Quadro, doing digital design?

If so, why are you crippling yourself with a 19" LCD?

That is going to be one cramped computer, all that in a 300 is not going to be fun.

Look at the Cooler Master 690 that should give you a bit more room to work with.

Or spend a bit more and get something like the Uber Chakra.

Also, remember that you have a combo deal with your CPU and MB.
