well I like the second one because I think it looks cool personally and not only that but maximumpc gave it a 9/10 which is pretty good.

Read the review find out why they like it so much.

I checked out Thermaltake.com and I saw alot of other options. Are they all good or are the ones you recomended better?

OK gents. I have 1200 I can spend today on the first parts of my new pc. Im not sure what parts other than the case but maybe you guys could make some suggestions. I have a few quick questions....

1. What motherboard would you suggest (i was looking at the A8N series.)

2 WHat is the difference between the Kandolf and armour series other than asthetics?

3. What RAM should I buy ( i need 4 gigs)

4. What are the first parts i should buy for around 1200?

Thanks gents.

Um, which CPU are planning to get?

I'd go with a DC Opteron or one of the X2s

1. DFi mobo or MSI.

2. Kandolf just looks more pretty, interior seems identical.

3. Do you seriously need 4 gigs of RAM?

4. whatever parts that are on a limited time sale
