Why spend so much on a case? I dont understand why people on a budget would spend so much on a case.

Nice selection. If you want to save nearly $30, you can get the FSP AX450-PN 450W PSU for $51.50. It's not as cool as the modular OCZ, but it provides more amps on the 12v rails and is one of the best built PSUs available.

You could apply that savings towards getting a better video such as the eVGA Geforce 7600GT KO for $159.99. :D

Just to inform you in case you didn't know, that hard drive is Ultra ATA100, not SATA. If you're looking for SATA, then look for something like WD3200JS, not JB. If you ever want to do RAID, I think you'll need SATA. Anyone feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

Now if you don't ever plan on doing RAID, you can go ahead and get that. If you wanted ATA, that's fine, just wanted to make sure you knew.
