PCI-Express 16x is not only worth it, you'd be a moron if you didn't get it with 2500 to spend. And no, DDR2 is not what it's cracked up to be, stick with DDR. How do you plan getting a custom MoBo, processor, RAM, etc? ROFL? Or do you just mean your getting a custom case?

Custon case? Check out www.voyeurmods.com. Very cool cases. They carry air-cooled and water-cooled custom cases.
