Looks really great there Pizza, I could even remove that Operating System, because I'll be using Windows XP Pro, one that came from this computer.

Don't get the thermaltake case, the wires will drive you absolutely bonkers. They're also marginal of quality. Antec 1040s are well built cases, not very pretty though. Tsunami Wavemasters are well built, as are the Lian-li v1000s.

I do like that case, and I won't be doing the wiring considering this will be the first computer I'm buying from scratch, if I don't get that is this any good?

My preference is a well built case, i'm not into the whole flashy plastic thing. In other words, it's not going to be well constructed. I've only seen 1-2 different raidmax cases though, and not that one in specific.

thermaltake cases have like 1000000000 fans in them.. None of them flow much air, but it looks nice. Cooling with amd 64s isnt an issue, they stay pretty cool most of the time.
