I'm not sure how much it would cost but,

Antec 1040 SX
Antec True 430ps
4 x Vantec Stealth 80mm

and get a zalman 7000a or 7700 for your cpu. Things will be nice and cool and silent.

I love my 2x 1040 sx's.. of all the cases i've owned this is the best.

those are both pretty snazzy, aswell as very well built.

If i wasn't so attached to my 1040sx i'd get the wavemaster

if you want the raidmax for its looks, fine, but don't use its psu

raidmax's psu suck *** (the one i'm using is a lil less than 2 years old and it gets incredibly loud [like the engine of a muscle car when it starts up?] sometimes)
