Current Price: 71$

This is what I'm planning on buying. I really want a quad-core, because I plan on doing video editing. I want a motherboard that can overclock. I want a modular power supply, ultra's seem nice. However I'm wondering whether I should get the 400w at Tiger Direct. Would run probably for about 50$ with shipping. I only plan to run one card, 8800GS, 8800GT, or 9600GT in this system, so I don't think I need 600watts. But will 400 be enough? I eventually plan to get a sound card, I don't know how much power that'll eat. The case, just wanted something that seemed like it'd be easy to arrange all of the parts, I guess this is totally tool-less, so that's good. It's also fairly attractive and I'd assume it has all right air-flow.

Lastly, do you guys think any of the prices will drop on these items? Or maybe the cost of shipping be removed? I'm kind of on a tight budget, this is going to probably eat almost all of the money I have right now. I think I might wait with the c2q because just a week ago it was 180$ (really kicking myself for not picking it up then... T_T )... But I'm thinking about getting the motherboard right now, I can't see the price getting much better then that. Same probably goes for the PSU.

So... I guess I'm asking...

400w PSU for 50$ or 600w for 64$ for the rig stated above?

Does anyone have previous experience with the case I chose? Is there anything better for that price?

Do you think there will be price drops on the case or c2q anytime soon?

1- don't skimp on your PSU you will regret it
2- I have 2 coolermaster cases and I love both of them for there quality and ease to work with
3- I have no clue on when, why, and how much cases drop in there price. I got my CLAmmo from new egg for free with a mail in rebate

Agreed, a good PSU will make your life so much easier.

I love coolermaster cases, but if that 534 is anything like their 'Elite' series you'd get a better value out of a standard centurion or (if on sale) a CM 690.

Price drops? It's electronics.. they always drop its just a matter of when. You really can't even think about price drops unless there's a known drop in the near future.

I asked about price drops because people were claiming that there were supposed to be some on the 20th. I didn't see any. Also, I remember last month newegg had an "end of the month" sale, I don't know whether or not that is a monthly sale, hence why I asked.

And are you guys saying there's something wrong with the power supplies I chose? They both seem quite good to mean, from what I remember they both have a single 12V rail and are modular. Modular is a big thing for me, this is my first time building a rig and I'm trying to make it as easy as possible. So far everything I've heard about ultra is positive, so...

Edit: the cm690 looks nice, but it's like 35$ more. :/

Using an XVS at the moment. Havent had any problems with it so far, and it puts out enough power for all my junk. It's not very efficient, but seriously who gives a .....

I'm personally not a fan of the Ultra power supplies. They're decent but I just had problems with 2 of them. But that's just me. This is a great list: http://www.overclock.net/power-suppl...-supplies.html and the two you picked are on it. It's hard to go by one person's opinion but easier when there's a consensus on a forum w/ 1000's of users.

The CM690 went on sale like crazy a few months ago. Also check your best buy for a Rocketfish... great case and some BB's are selling for $40-60. Mine's selling for $92. :\\

there was a price drop on the 20th, by Intel... look at how much a Q6700 goes for... the Q6600 only dropped by like 20 or so, though

Yeah, but when the q6700 was being sold for like 500$ you could buy barebone kits that included it for 600$... So I never really payed much attention to that. And the q6600 and been bouncing around since it's initial release as well.
