Get this case http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811119077

Above is cheaper option,
or you could get this one http://shop4.outpost.com/%7BJhTUBeU1...H:MAIN_RSLT_PG

I have the Silver model, if you get the Silverstone TJ-06, you'll need this also, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16812162004

Nice case Drizo. And looks like a nice build you have there. Good ATI brands would be HIS (my fav.) Sapphire, ATI (overpriced ussually). If cross-fire is a future option, MSI announced that their P965 has cross-fire support and ATI just released a driver for it. Although, i think it runs 16X/4X instead of 8X/8X as in the 975X chipsets or the R600. Article: http://www.dailytech.com/article.aspx?newsid=4224

CPU Cooler: Tuniq tower by far the best but the hardest to find. Scythe towers are amazin, i love my Ninja but htey have some newer ones that mount easier and they cool just as good if not better.

RAM: G.Skill is an awsome company if ur lookin for a good company, i've had my DDR 400 up to 450mhz stable. And get two 1GB sticks not four sticks (inless u want 4GB which is useless at the moment)

Also, it might be cheaper (and better performance) to get 2 say like 80GB SATA II drives and RAID them then get another 80GB or more (most ppl prefer 250GB) and use that as a back-up drive. Just a suggestion.

Get another 160gb SATA drive to put most of your stuff on, or another large raptor so you can put them in RAID

What sets these cases apart from other cases? I've also been looking at this case as well:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811133154

I meant 4 sticks of 512mb, instead of 2 sticks of 1gb. I've heard Conroes run better with the 4 sticks of 512mb, anyone else heard similar?

I've heard about RAID, but i'm not going to do it. I don't really need extra storage and Hard Drive failure scares me.

The silverstone ones are the same case except one is silver, other black. The first link is to a cooler master case, a good case thats priced good.

That thermaltake isn't worth the price imho, go visit Fry's, they have that Thermaltake case, and the Silverstone's... you can compare the quality in person.

Fry's? Never heard of Fry's. I'll have to see if there's one in near my location.

Well there's no 'Fry's' in my state, according to their website. But that Coolermaster looks like a decent case. I'm not really a fan of that Silverstone case, though.
