Case without power supply? Whats the difference? And the cheapest I could go if I get a case and powersuply separate is $150, while right now im paying only $50 for both.

Get a case without a powersupply and get yourself a decent powersupply. Seriously. I am not kidding you. Do NOT skimp on the power supply.

Hmm alright I might do that than. But some of the cases I like say that they support mobo dimensions of 11" x 12", while all mobos are around 12" x 9.5". Atleast the ASUS which im gona get is... So for example, will this mobo go with this case.

Well if you're case comes with a good psu its all good. Not all psu/case combos are crappy, but the majority are. Just be careful when buying.

I liked this case. It's only 96 bucks this week, after rebate.

This psu looks promising as well. It's really quiet from the reviews.

Hmm ok well this is hopefully the final build. Ive looked over other posts, and this is the best I could come up with. $400 more expensive that I originally planned, but atleast im getting the good things. Oh, and is the OCZ power supply that I chose a good one? And the case looks nice, and hopefully is durable. Also upgraded to 2GB ram instead of only 1 to increase perfomance.

Now we're talking man. That's perfect. The psu is more than enough and everything else looks kickass!!!!!!

Well for cooling, the stock is ok, but I would highly suggest you get this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835118004
to cool the cpu. I'm getting one of these very soon, as soon as I have time to

Good luck man and enjoy!

Thermalright SI-128 is better than the Zalman. I would rather get that than the Zalman.

Haha sweet. I think il hold on before buying anything else for this PC. Cause my dad is paying for it, and im like...500 dollars over the limit he set me to. But w/e. And will everything fit in the case I chose. Cause it sais it supports 11"x12" mobos, but mine is 12"x9.5". Ive read some reviews on newegg, and people say its just a typo. So hopefully they are right.

well i read that there could be some problems with the thermalright h/s, that specific one above, having problems mounting due to the heatpipe on the ASUS M2N Series motherboards.

I'm sure it can fit a normal ATX sized motherboard like the one you chose.
