Default Final decisions

I'm about ready to order all the parts to build my new gaming system. I do need some help with picking out the case. Also, I'm not so sure about the RAM and PSU, so I'd like some advice on those. Other than that, I think it's gonna be a pretty good rig. So please let me know if there's anything you think I should change, or if there'll be compatibility issues, or whatever! Thanks.

I'd go for an 8mb cache hard drive. Especially for gaming.

How about this one?

Also, can someone recommend a good, (not too pricey) case?

I suggest you get a different motherboard like the MSI K8N Neo 2 Platinum which is way better in performance and overclocking.
Its a bit more buts its worth it.

Thanks, I'll consider that mobo if I can budget it. I'm pinching pennies with this system right now. Any recommendations for a case? I've heard that it's better to buy a case and PSU separately, is that true?

i'd go with a 3200+ if you can afford it.....

i like the mobo...everyone i know includein' me have never had problems with gigabyte....great boards for a lesser price is the way i think of them.
