Proccesor I'm think phenom, but is intel better for gaming? Dont worry about the cost of this. I will most likely get an X2 because i want dual core. And which case is better im leaning towards the second. Thanks for your help.

That is a good build have you got it yet.
If you are putting on XP you dont need 2GB of RAM.
512mb will do.

That all looks pretty good. I agree, definatly wait for the Phenoms, although you could just get a 6000+ or a 6400+ now which can easily compete with the C2Ds and are much cheaper. Also you could maybe spend a tiny bit more and you could get a lightscribe DVD drive which is very usefull. With the RAM, I'd get some Corsair sticks as they are much more overclockable.
