Ehh, no. I used that on a friends build, and I HATED IT. The drive cages were flimsy, the front cover was impossible to get off, and the power switch was hard to push.

It took me 3 hours to setup the case, when my friends Antec 900 build took me just under 2 hours.

Ok, in that case the Antec 900 (again, what's aging about it?). If you can find a rocketfish, that's of course a great case.

Did you read my posts about the HX620 PSU and the motherboard? (esp. the lack of RAID support on the DS3L)

I don't need RAID on my new computer. I do have a IDE raid card, but that is going to be what I'm using to RAID0 two old 80GB's for my old computer.

And yeah I saw about the mobo and PSU.

I need advice on:
A case, should I buy the Rocket Fish? Yes if your on a budget and dont want something a bit more flashy that would be a great case to start with that has lots of room for improvement if you want to get into modding in the future.
A power supply (basically Corsair HX vs. TX) if your case has room to tuck some cables away stick with a regular supply, if you want your case to be clean like its fresh out of the shower or dont have much room to tuck those nasty cables away go for the modular.
A video card (8800GT VS GTS) im getting a 8800gts 512 g92 so im going to have to reccomend it &_& but the gt is a great card to if you need to cut back on a few bucks. if you have a little more room in your budget and want some killer graphics the 9800gtx is only 300 now, keep it in mind^_^

Here are the parts I'm considering as of now:

Q6700 $260: great cpu if you need to cut back a little the 6600 is almost the same cpu.
DS3L $97: not sure on the mb going to have to ask someone else im more into sli stuff
520HX $130: a bit more powerful if you want to be safer in the future http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139006
Antec 900 $140: great case, i think cases are all about preferance so i wont make suggestions here, go for a case you think looks great and suits your needs best.
8800GTS $255: im buying the same thing cant argue here ^_^
2GB RAM $50: not bad but u could get 4g for almost the same price also you might want to get something that can clock higher for better overclocks. heres a 4gb http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231148 and if you want it to OC well you could go for http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231166
DVD $35: optical drives are all good not even gona look go for the one that will look best in your tower
120-eXtreme $60: cant go wrong with a true ^_^


Should I:
1)Buy the GT over the GTS? I don't want to spend $40 more on a card that is only marginally better. -i would go with the gts but if budget forbids it you can always downgrade gt's are great cards too
2)Go with the 650TX over the 520HX? Their the same price, but the only difference I can tell is modular cabling and 12+v rails... -i would personaly go with the extra amps over modular
3)And a case. I know the Antec 900 is aging, so I need modest recommendations on a new one. -once again go with what you think looks good, this is what people are going to see when they come to your home features are important but only for you random people that come over arnt going to see a OC'ed 6700. They see the case.
4) What 120mm fan should I buy for my TRUE 120? -im not a expert on fans but im putting this in my TT http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811999122
5) Should I spend an extra $30 on a EVGA card, and do a Step-Up to a new GT200 card?[/QUOTE] -put simply yes.

Sounds like this will come out nicely good luck with everything and i look forward to seeing it folding for OCN.
M.E.D.

Wildfire why don't you consider the G92 GTS ?. It's performance only sags at high resolutions above 1900 and grab the Antec 1200 its much better in all aspects.

Thanks. I'll look into trying to find a Rocketfish, because I've seen that its a solid case.

And I'm probably going with a 8800GT, I want to shave some money off the build.

The 1200 costs too much, and I was considering the G92. It's stupid to get the others.

Yea but eVGA isnt the only one who makes G92 GTS . XFX and a few others have it as well.
