It's an old case, so I don't remember much about it. It's full size though. If I can find any info on it before I head home today I'll post, otherwise I'll get the model when I get home.

If I had to venture a guess, I would say I would only have problems with the largest of fans.

Edit:
Found it!

Thanks a bunch for all of the input. I've revised my build and added a HDD. Unless there's anything glaringly wrong with it, I'm going to proceed.

A few of the items are out of stock at Newegg. The only other places I have orderd from online I have found through pricewatch and have had nothing but unreliable service. What are a few other sites that are comparable to Newegg?

Thanks again!
Andy

Very nice, but get samsung spinpoint f1 750GB, and crucial ballistix PC2-6400 if possible.

Buy.com seems to have the e8400 for cheaper - $212 (or $220, they have two listed?). But they are also out of stock.

I'm waiting for it, too :laughing:

Hey, I appreciate all of the input I've received in this thread.

One last question (probably)...will it be worth it to upgrade to Vista from XP Pro? I don't mind spending the money on it if there are significant benefits, but I have heard that Vista is really just a spiffy looking version of XP.

Thanks,
Andy
