got a little more of a budget so i had to start over here is what i got from ibuypower. i have some questions,i still havent been able to decide on a case but will these cases be compatible with the mobo, wich one would you pick?(links posted below), are all monitors compatible im getting mine seperate the link is below, and can someone give me a good and compatible power supply at the Watts needed for 40-50 dollars that i can order with the monitor from newegg. dont know how many watts i would need to run my system? ive read the reveiws about ibuypower, some were real good and some were real bad, but IBP tried to fix it and i can always get money back for a year.ive looked at alot of other config sites and they are all so much more expensive then IBP.
and one more thing. about the liquid cooling system that it comes with, how exactly do those work?
