Honestly I probably wont sli anytime soon just OC and I mostly play WoW, LoL and will also play Star Wars The Old Republic. So will I need anything more than 1GB?

Also can you suggest a modular PSU if I were to sli sometime?

People putting them G.Skills in their computer... seriously -_- Anyways, that Noctua is going to take over your entire motherboard man, for a clean looking system I do not reccomend it at all. Check out the H series that Corsair has...

G.Skill is so cheap dude that you should just invest in the higher speed ram and try a 8GB kit of that.

Should go a bit of the extra mile on a blu-ray drive man... Blu-Ray DVD Burner combo for entertainment...

ASUS Black 12X BD-ROM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-ROM SATA Internal Blu-ray Drive Model BC-12B1ST/BLK/B/AS - OEM

That above should do it, its around 70 bucks but its worth it!

Lancool PC-K62 / 63 is a good case as well. It's got all the features of a good case, tool-less install and cable management. Really, between most of these cases the biggest difference is just looks and maybe price.

I will upgrade to a bluray drive and an ssd later on but for now im trying to keep it cheap so I can get it built asap. So if the ram I picked is not the best what would you suggest then?

I also really like the K62/3 a lot.

Alot of people use G.skill don't get me wrong.. none of them that I have seen seem to have issues with it at all. I am almost to the point where I would say all ram is the same, but my Ram is freaking HUGE lol. I was just suggesting that why not go for the higher speed G.Skill Ram, honestly I would have done the same if I did not already buy mines at the store. Your ram will do it. G.Skill Higher speed

Antec cases suck... take a look at Fractal Design, Cooler Master, NZXT...

What about Lian Li cases? I really like that K63 case they have. I especially like the LED's. =p

That actually night not be a good idea. Im considering the HAF 922 because whip it doesn't have a side panel window foris very wide for the D14. Are there any good wide side panel cases?

Thinking about the HAF X bit seems kinda pricey. Though I will save some money on the RAM because the red ram is cheaper than the blue for some reason.

With the HAF X and red ram over blue it comes out to about 1212.76 which isn't too bad IMO. If I really do get rid of the 902 V3.

What does everyone think about the Lanboy air cases? Considering the red or blue one with some extra fans later on for some really good cooling. I know someone said Antec cases suck but this one just seems good with airflow to me seeing as it's mostly mesh.

Right now it's between the Lanboy Air Red Black and the HAF X. Leaning towards the HAF X though, just seems so awesome.

Btw will this fan fit in any of the 200mm fan slots on the HAF X? I am considering using 3, 2 on the top, replacing the one that comes stock and the one on the side with the shroud. I just wanna make sure they are a perfect fit for the spots is all.

200mm Red LED case fan
