Update:

- ANTEC NSK6000 - 59.01€
- 2 x ARCTIC COOLING FAN 9 - 12.58€
- ARCTIC COOLING FAN 8 - 5.93€ (Opcional)

I chose this case, i think its a nice one for the price and quality.

Well let me explain a bit better. Right now i have a 4 years old pc, exept for one or two components. AGP 8x Motherboard, and graphic card, Intel Pentium IV 2.5Ghz, etc... so i though that i needed to upgrade for a better config. Its for games, photo editing (right now unfortunatly i have not dedicated much time to photography, but lets say i work with basic/intermediate editing, using Photoshop CS2), music (i think the Asus P5E as a good sound board!? thats what i have heard), Work (for University) and thats it for the most. Maybe in the future i will use some 3D Graphic applications applied to my subject (Archaeology) but for now im not already working with that applications.
