It's a fairly good case

You mentioned cooling, are you planning on overclocking in future?

build that suka! however... if not doing any overclocking, you could save a few bucks and get the ASUS P6T or P6T-SE.... whoops... just saw that was a big combo with a fairly large discount... build that suka

i was thinking of a build almost identical to this, nice choice. also great find on that combo deal, same parts i wanted but didnt find a combo. for someone building the same thing - stock cooler and heatsink ok for no overclocking? also, on the i7, did intel change the stock cooler? on a couple of older builds i managed to always break one of those clips pushing it into the board
