Good case that is good eye candy. If you don't care about looks I'd recommend a Lian-Li. It is much sturdier, quiet, and bigger. Otherwise, that case should do.

Not really the way to get members to help you, why don't you start again, & ask it without putting pressure on in this way?

Well by 'bump' I mean, I'll continue to ask question related to this topic until they're all answered. Try not assuming the worst about me.

EDIT; OK, OK, I don't, but just be aware that there is a limit to how many bumps you can make, now, it's not an official rule, but it's generally understood that you can't keep bumping for "ever".....anyway, I'm sure you don't intend to, thought I'd just remind you, good luck with the sale!

for the case- any full tower case you think looks good. don't worry about the psu in the case, as you will buy a better one anyways.

for the processcer, I'd get an intel core2duo e6600
mobo- any mobo with a lot of pci slots for your sound stuff to add in.
video- 1 8800GTX
HDD- get 2 identical hard drives, and put them in raid 1.

I'll post parts links in a few hours.

I will keep ALL of these suggestions in mind when picking things as far as features and the likes go. Since you're all basically posting your dream setups here, if you don't mind, tryt o include WHY you chose that particular thing, as I'm VERY computer stupid, for the most part, I know nothing other than basics.


I'm pretty sure I'm going to buy this case.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811112064

Do any of you have any reason why I shouldn't? Its pricy, but I don't mind. Its got LOADS of room and I want to be able to upgrade for years and years with it.

Apparently it was designed to be a server. What does that mean? How will that affect things?

And will the EATX-only motherboard thingie affect me?

ok he choose theeese componnents because
MOBO)Very good
chipset also 3 pci express slots for future and can support up to 8gb ram
CPUU)The best line of cpu at the moment , also only better processor at the mo is a quadcore which realy isn't necessary
RAM)Good brand and you asked for 3gb also ddr2 high speed ram
VID)DX10 card so the newest line of vid cards out at the mo , and if you are only gaming ocasionaly that will do you great
CASE)Very good spacious case , not my thing but as i said before case is your personal preference
PSU)A good brand and supplies enough power for this setup
HDD) Make sure you get seagate perpendicular recording drives , cos they are the second best thing to a raptor according to reviews , also if you wanted get a raptor as a boot drive , it is the best thing you will ever do

This will support a lot of things. More ram, dual graphics cards if you need more power and maybe a faster CPU.
Processor:
Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 (2.4GHz)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...N82E16819115003
One of the fastest CPUs on the market, enough said.

RAM:
Mushkin DDR667 1GBx3 (3GB Total)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...N82E16820146091
Good brand and timings (I think) and 3GB as you said.

Video Card:
BFG Tech 8800GTS 320MB OC
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...N82E16814143091
Should keep games and more powered for a lot of games to come.

Case:
Thermaltake Armor
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...N82E16811133016
Large case... I think your one will work too.

Power Supply:
Enermax Noisetaker II 600W
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...N82E16817194005
A high powered power supply for those power hungry components.

Hard Drive:
Seagate Barracuda 500GB (Get 2 if you want...)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...N82E16822148136
Fast and quiet hard drives.
Optical Drive:
LG 18x DVD Burner
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...N82E16827136108
DVD burner, for burning things.
