Wow, thanx for all the posts! It's been helping the decision making process a LOT! Two things are still bothering me. The first being the case. I've heard a lot about the antec sonata: http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...129-127&depa=1
But it IS a little too pricey for me :-\ I've heard Enermax isn't too bad either, so how about this case which is more in my budget? http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...124-061&depa=0
Also, I've heard mixed reviews on the ATI 9600SE. I don't plan on doing THAT MUCH gaming...I'm into things like The Sims, and I also watch movies pretty often on the computer... Will this card suffice? Or is a second edition card really not good?
