Those cases are fine. I think the CM centurion 5 is superb value. Personally I love the Lian-Li, but they can get a bit pricey. Also look at TT Tsunami. In the end, whatever case you get, you'll make it work.

About the PSU, dont skimp on that. The power rating has nothing to do with how much electricity it will consume. Be very careful of cheap PSU's. I am a total PC P&C fanboy because their PSUs are top notch. They are very quiet and efficient. The efficiency of the PSU determines how much electricity it will consume. Your components are the current sinks in your system. The total load (from your components) factored with the PSU efficiency determines total kWh used. Especially if you get the 8800GTS640, stick with a high amp single rail PSU like the PC P&C 610. PSUs are for the long term.

@J3r3my
i kinda like the 3rd case too, but for some reason it doens't have a Reset button...O_o, don't all cases have a power and a reset button?

@sti_boy =
im not planning to skim on the PSU, but that Antec Trio 550 watts was rated 2nd tier on guruguru, so that's why i choose it. as for the the centurion, it doesn't have a front intake fan, so i don't like it.

^^ Agreed I really only recommend PC P&C or Silverstone. Quality matters.

Most cases have a power button. A lot have reset buttons too, but not all.

GET A GOOD CASE. I like mine, nice. Budget. Just make sure you leave all filters in.... messy!

I don't think i miss anything. Please tell me if there's a problem with the current test build. Thanks.

It's a shame that with this build, i have nothing to spare. I was planning on using the E4300 for now and will switch to the Q6600 when its price drop, but now i don't think i can. not for a while anyway.

Vivi, like I said in your other thread, get whatever you can from ZZF, you can save on the tax. Not so much on the shipping, zzf seems to be slightly more expensive, to compensate for the free shipping, but the tax is a definate savings.
