Im thinking about getting the CoolerMaster 690. Is it worth the extra 15 from the Antec Three Hundred?

Ah, sh*t. Forgot to purchase a 50 foot VGA cable from Amazon.com. I really hate individual orders. Inflates shipping.

Holy crap, how far are you routing your cables?

Monoprice cheaper?

Yeah, but not by much. I usually don't order from Monoprice.com unless I want to buy cables in bulk.

I'd say 35 feet at most, but it's better to have some flexibility.

I'd have to agree. The only thing I do not like about the 690 I have is the power button. It just feels flimsy but that might just be my case. I love how they have all the extra screws stored inside the case. It makes upgrading a lot easier since you don't need to dig for screws.

I just found a refurbished Core 216 for $118. Should I buy?
that'd be epic for physX, and it's cheaper than a 9800gtx+ like I was originally looking at.

EDIT: OK I bought it. PhysX better be cool.

You know...owning an ATi card that you'll have to get modified drivers for dedicated PhysX support. Nvidia stopped support for dedicated PhysX in systems with ATi cards.

In regards to this: Just find the registry entry under "HKEY > Local System > Software" and export the header key for the game/program. Then double click it on the new OS to add it to the reg. Just make sure the directory links are correct. It may also require you to reinstall your DX version.
