Well, the thing is that the ati chip is better and the conroe is also better. It is really about performance over a brand name. It will al cost about the same but if I get the ati system I want to be able to upgrade to crossfire. The reason I don't shoot at that is because I think the am3 chips will be superior. The question is will it be in my price range. **** amd needs to come out with info soon or conroe will be in my pc.
Well, only the front is plastic, the sides and top are not plastic. They are steel. I want a solid. good looking, and also has good airflow. Also comes about $50, and I don't want to spend $100+ on a case. It isn't real hardware, only airflow matters in a case, but I want it to look good aswell.
