Well, never mind! I'm getting one free off Craigslist thursday! It's an atx computer case, whatever that means. I'll probably mod it if I don't like it.. I'm going I add a 1/8" window on it for sure.

OP, you really want a window don't you, lol. I wouldn't recommend the Smilodon, I used to have one.

The HAF912 (can be had for $40 after $10 MIR on Amazon) is a great case, but if you want a window, Consider the NZXT M59 for $50

Lol ya, I like them a lot. I'm going to see how this computer case is, and if it's really crappy I'll go with something like that. Thanks!

I'm definitely not going to overclock. I'm sure now, there's not much reason for me to.

This is really helpful thank you, Ill be saving some money by not having to get the case.I think I'll be going with the seagate 500gb hd instead. Someone posted a link towards a combo CPU and mobo which I think would be helpful. I do like the mobo you posted though because you can upgrade to an i7 at some point also. Everything else seems great for me.

Got the case. It's a lot bigger than I expected. It came with two snail exhaust fans. Ill need to add most likely 1 120mm fan and 1 80mm. Not a big issue. I'll be putting windows on the side with probably green LEDs. Will it affect stability?

Absolutely not.

Having holes doesn't means you needs to put fan in it wink.gif (more fans = more noise, and they are often useless wink.gif). With your setup, the PSU would be enough ventilation.
