Hey, sounds like a good PC, but thats really like a gaming PC, you should get into gaming.

Bad case though, get one from newegg. I can't imagine how hot a C2D would get in such a small case.

Oh man that is REALLY REALLY REALLY small. You won't be able to upgrade it that well, and you also wont get any cooling in there.

It is also a dell, so it is a lose lose. Sorry about being so frank, but that case is seriously not that good.

Edit: what is your budget, and what are you going to be using this for? I will make the build for you if you want.
