I like the 932 but I have been reading about this case. You think its worth the money or just go with the other 932 because the shipping is free. Here is the one I been looking at.

Hafs a nice case, maybe double check the cooler fits.
Yea I think I'm going to go with the HAF. I don't think ill need that cooler though, because almost every review says the airflow is amazing. I found this case...Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER HAF 932 Blue RC-932-KKN3-GP Black Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case. But is it really worth the price or should I go with the one mentioned before, which has free shipping...?

do you mean the Red 932 has free shipping? it all depends on what you want, if you want the blue one bad enough to pay for shipping then get the blue one, if you like the red one, then you get a bonus of free shipping.

Yea, thats what i meant. I think i may go with the Blue one...I like it and its getting some pretty solid reviews. Now i need to find a motherboard. Any one that you would recommend for an i7 930 build?

(Although, there is not many reviews on it. I will have to do some more searching to see whats up.)

What do you guys think of that combo with the mother board, HAF 932..

Oh yea, i am still debating on going SSD or just a standard 1TB 7200 Western Digital Hard Drive...

hi omag i like your setup, but I am also building a gaming system with an i7 chipset and after reading some articles I found out that the i7 doesn't support memory faster than 1333mhz , triple channel so a 1600mhz would just be for bragging rights.

when you first install your ram it will default to 1333mhz. if the ram you bought is rated to run at 1600mhz, you'll have to do some adjustments in the bios to get it running at it's rated speeds.

same speed, same timings.

get the non xxx 5870 instead.
Newegg.com - XFX HD-587X-ZNFV Radeon HD 5870 (Cypress XT) 1GB 256-bit DDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
they are charging you $40 more for a pitiful 25mhz core OC and 50mhz memory OC which you can very easily do yourself.
the psu is a good choice though, stick with that.

if you can afford it, an ssd would be a good addition to your build but only as a primary drive for your OS/programs. if you get one, you should also get a separate hdd for data storage.

this would be a good choice.
