Default Building a Computer. Need some help.

I am going to start building a computer. I am going to start buying the parts now. I just bought a 23 inch Dell TV/monitor I am going to start with the Case first. Who makes some badass cases. I don't really know a lot about computer parts so I don't really know what's good and bad. Or where to find anything. If you guys could post links that would be great. I think I want to do liquid cooling though. Here is the case I found.CASE LINK Is it any good? What are the better ones out there?

Dustin

I will first make a plan before I really buy anything. I am not big in games. I use the computer mostly for the internet. I do want to start making DVDs and stuff like that. I just want a really nice computer. I am on my alot and I just to learn about things. This will be my first computer too build. I don't know too much but I learn really fast.

Here is the basic breakdown:
AMD - good for games
P4 - good for multitasking

If you want a budget computer, personally, i would go with the AMD.

get a p4 since you're dealing with making movies and such, and make sure your HDD has plenty of space, I'd say at least 160 gigs. Get plenty of ram too.
