jealous of what? not having a antec 900. no im fine. just trying to make him stand out of the crowd. it is a great cheap case and thats why it is so common. i usally like CM. but i wanted something with more bling.

what more of a reason do you need besides this?


if you want to see a waste of a processor
then look at this thing

who would get that?
and why
no one would ever use it to its limits

PSU - something around the 600W mark, Antec, Thermaltake etc, thing to look for is amps on the 12v rail(s)

Board - Asus P5E (X38 chipset) or similar

Memory - depends if you're overclocking or not, kingston HyperX is good solid memory if you're not looking to overclock the snot out of it and can usually run at tighter timings/lower VDIMM than spec

OCZ if you're looking to oc

No links as you don't state which country you're in, you'll have to source pricing yourself.
