Thanks for the links clbkdaz. That makes good sense to me as well, I was looking for a little level headed reasoning that I couldn't provide myself with.

NP - I've bought a case simply because it fit into my budget before - and guess what. I hated my PC for it.

It will cost you in the long run...because eventually (sooner then later) you will have to run out and spend the money on the case you want and have an extra case sitting around.

Here...I made a couple minor changes and put them in a shopping cart to see where the prices fall....

I swapped the ASUS burner/drive for a lite-on (a tad cheaper but the same specs) and included an E8400.

$691 shipped to AZ....not sure where you are.
