First computer build. Wanna start gaming a lot. This list will be my around Christmas self present. I posted a list about 4 days ago but this seems to be a lot better.

Buy a better case. Why are you buying a Case/PSU combo? You could get a better case for that money.

Yea this doesnt belong in this forum, plus why buy that board if your going DFI do it right and by the SLI or the Ultra-D I have the Ultra-D and love it. Also I agree with the above the case/psu combo sux, buy seperate better buy and better looks/performance. the nicer DFI boards are only about 20-30 bucks more anyway. everything else looks ok though

I do have the ocz psu in there if you didn't see it. 520 watt power stream is on there. What exactly is wrong with the case? It has plenty of airflow and I can't see anything to hinder my build so.. enlighten me.
