lol...everyone has their likes and dislikes, but the Armor is staying. It's a very popular choice, among full towers, and high end systems. Why don't you mod it?

Have anything to add though?



OT: Just to remind myself, that I'll be adding this case in, for mid. Thanks to krazyq.

You should replace E2140 by E2160, because E2160 is now $1 cheaper than E2140 on newegg

You should add the new 8800GS 384MB in the mid-end build

Why E8400 is on the mid-end ? It is performs better than slower Quads such as Phenom 9500 in many applications ! I think it should be placed on the high-end build

EDIT: I think E4500 and E4600 should be added on the mid-end build because they perform very well even if you don't overlcock them. Just look at these benchmarks, E4600 does beat 5600+ most of the time.

i metioned the 4x00 series but b1gapl said it was pointless because you could get a e2200 or e6550

Arctic Alpine should be added onto low-end HS/F (its like $12 and better than most stock HS/F. Best for AMD builds, as Intel's stock HS/F is pretty good)

7600GT should be added onto low-end gfx. It performs nearly as well as 8600GT, and can be found much cheaper PROOF

E4500 and E4600 is priced between E2200 and E6550

E4600 overclocks better than E6550 because of the higher multiplier. Stock vs stock, E6550 is barely faster than E4600, and it is around $30 more

I don't think that E4500 and E4600 are pointless
