I'll check out those cases, thanks. I was looking for something on the conservative side anyway, I mean, without all the neon lights and nutty stuff that you crazy kids are sporting

That is what I meant. I am only 17, but I do not want any lights or crazy colors.

Any of those cases would be great. That TJ07 was in the Maximum PC Dream Machine a few times, I believe.

Depending on your tastes, here are a few more cases that are very functional, stylish, and well built.

Just a little word on the mobo you picked out in the beginning (you may have changed, didn't read the entire thread), but the Striker Extreme is having OC-ing issues, like not going over 430 FSB. Not very good for a $400 board, and also, the eVGA 680i is having SATA trouble. If you could, wait for the DFI 680i board.

WOW! I was just looking at the TJ07 at TigerDirect.com. It's not a very stylish-looking case, but it's very bold. I like it.

When it comes to cases and mobos, must I consider the two being compatible, or are cases and mobos standardized?

TigerDirect sucks. They always list in stock... Which isn't always true.

Just look for the ATX compatible standard.

I don't want to wait, and I definitely want an SLI board.
Why did the ASUS Striker get a bad review, and where is the review? I want to read it

Thanks

For sound I recommend Klipsch. I have the Promedia 2.1 system and it is simply amazing for a computer speaker system. Simply blows creative away. They also sell a very good surround package. I got mine on Amazon for $105.50 + $20 shipping. Newegg has it for $150 shipped.

If you're using headphones, I recommend Senn 595's. They're more appropriate for gaming compared to the 650 due to their more confined sound-stage. Couple both/either of these with a good sound-card.

Why only 2Gb of ram? If you don't want to have to upgrade I'd pick up the quad core cpu, 4 Gb DDR2 ram, dual 8800GTX's, the PCP&C 1000W psu, (You are gonna need some SERIOUS power.) and I'd do a Raid 0 of two 300 Gb, 10,000 RPM raptors with a separate Raid 1 500 Gb, 7200 RPM HD.

Don't touch 680i. All the 680i boards are unstable and full of issues. I would go with 975X. More specifically the P5W64 WS. That is the top 975X Core 2 Duo overclocker.
