The problem w/ a list like this is that the parts will keep changing and that everyone has their own idea of what's a good value and what's not. IMO a no name case is fine. And people have their own opinion of ram, mobo, pretty much everything you put on that list of yours. Oh yea, and the prices will change.

parts always change, different people have different needs; this ain't gonna be stickied

and plus, there's no need for a $150 case (some people would argue this though...that's why there's no point to stickying it)

also, the stock HSF is good enough if this is a budget setup

and seagate > WD (again..some people would disagree)

Neither OCZ or Western Digital deserve to be on that list.
Thermaltake are defiantly best for bang power supply, G. Skill is the best ram, OCZ is good, twinmos is great value ram.

Very true,You would have to update the list every single day and plus you get people arguing over what should and shouldn't be on it (DJ-CHRIS )

the main problem with this list is that it's all opinions

I agree with a majority lol, but I know everyone wont

Western digital is the best HD maker there is, quit spreading blasphemy chris
