I'm not sure what motherboard and case i should get. i've been looking at a bunch and it seems like all of the nice cases dont come with a power supply or cooling. is there anything else that i should get?
I was looking around to see what other people had ordered and im wondering if this
case would work.
The Core i7 920 is an amazing CPU.
CORSAIR is a very reliable company for RAM.
The V8 is a great CPU cooler.
You don't have a PSU, Case, or MOBO.
The Antec 1200 is a great case, but it is huge, you might not need that much space.
I suggest the Antec 900, unless you plan to throw a lot more stuff into it in the future. (like me
You might want to consider 2x 500GB, 640GB or 1TB 7200 RPM hard drives in RAID 0 over a 300GB 10K RPM hard drive though. Better performance and more space for less/similar cost.
You'll probably get better deals at newegg.com than amazon.com
