i'll look into the stuff agian.
I think the core components such as processor and vid card will be a good foundation that doesn't have too high an opinion. However, for the cases, you are asking for peoples' opinions as most will get the job done. I think the HAF 932 by cooler master looks decent, but it functions VERY WELL. I only care about what I see on my PC screen so I may not be of great help if you want to show off your build to people.

Other than that, I think you will be very happy with $1500 to $1600 build. You definitely don't need to spend more than that and crush all games (spare Crysis) out today and down the road for some time. I am telling you right now, the 5970 or GTX 480 or whatever will be great.

- Intel i7-930 CPU @ 3.4 GHz w/ Zalman CNPS 9900 MAX
- Asus P6X58D Mainboard
- Corsair 1000W PSU
- Cooler Master HAF 932 Adv. Chassis
- SSD Intel 40 gig
- HDD: 2x SATA III 300 GBs
- LG Blu-Ray 8X
- Gigabyte GTX 670 WF @ 1098 Mhz
- Corsair Dominator 6 GB (2 x 2 GB Trip mode)
