Still...the Phenom's don't exactly have the greatest reliability record.
The B3s are a complete turnaround. If AMD can get K10 down to 45nm in time and then start ramping up the clock speeds, Intel have got some real competition.

And even if it was the Thermaltake, I'd take a PC Power & Cooling PSU over that any day, even if it has 40 watts less power. Check out the specs, 49A on a single +12V rail, that is intense
Well, whichever one he goes for, they're both good PSUs. And none of the multiple 12V rails on the Xigmatek are going to be overloaded even though the amperage is less per rail. Each component will have a dedicated rail.
The Xigmateks and The Toughpowers are manufactured by Channelwell you are a very reputable brand.

*Coughs* Didn't see the post that you said my PSU was fine. That means 80$ back up and 200$ on a case!

any appoints would be nice!

I read the posts about the tuniq and A full tower would probably be better

If you want to save a few bucks, the OCZ StealthXStream OCZ600SXS 600W power supply would be another great choice.

As for cases, the Cooler Master RC-690 that worshipme suggested would be an excellent choice. They are well built, easy to work in, and offer excellent cooling.

Just making sure that it would be big enough for the Tuniq. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811119137

Thanks everyone!

Samsung Spinpoint F1 is the fastest 7200RPM drive on the market.
