Yea changed some parts a bit. I really want the case though, I build systems for a small computer store here in Seattle and the 650D has been one of the more impressive cases I've built in. I'm really attracted to the mouse though because of its customization.

but its ur choice
:thumb:go ahead with i7 26ook
Yea, I'll be overclocking more than 4Ghz that's why I'm going with the "water cooling".

It really is though, the $600 chip and I'm only gonna be using 4 cores on my games. I will CF my 7970 in maybe a couple of months or two and I still need to buy a new monitor, so that $200 does make a difference for me :/
