Cool, I was hoping for replies like these. Yes $700 is enough to cover it all, it comes out to $690 with shipping. Yes I plan on oc'ing it. And Im debating on weither or not to get a second hd, cause I only have 26gb combined right now and it works fine, i just keep it clean regularly.

Is that the best video card in that price range? Is the pro better? And the memory is their value select line, is that stuff crap, or does it work good; and would i be better off buying some better memory?

I still need my case question answered please.

Thanks!

Overclocking confuses me; its a cheap and gutless alternative you working hard to get it; unless you are overclocking over available levels like Gibant and Geforceboy. No offense of course for everybody who's doing it - it just isn't right, if you know what I mean, eh?

But yeah; I think maybe the 9800XT would be close to the best in the Price Range; what sort of price are 5950s and 5900s?
