Any more suggestions? The RAM is the only one I'm iffy about now. I would pick crucial but I can only find 1GB sticks at 1066, and I've heard that 2 sticks are better than 4.

Very nice, I would get WD AAKS 500 or 640 GB hardrives but that's just my taste.

2x2GB g.Skill DDR2-1000 sticks are the best bang for the buck right now and they overclock like mad.

750W power supply is good enough for 2 4870s by the way

anyone second that?

The RAM is fine. The G.Skill 1066 ones (the ones I have) are the ones you want to stay away from. And I wouldn't recommend Crucial with the current state of their RAM.

OK, thx for the info guys. I have heard about crucial ballistix not doing well these days and the problems with ddr2 1066 ram, now after reading up some more on the set I have picked in the OP I have decided to stick with that. It can go 1200 with only 2v.

Well now I'm done with choosing parts and I just have to get them ordered, and tomorrow my Antec 1200 arrives!!! All I have planned to do with that so far is to dremel off the fan grills to get max airflow w/ min noise. I might look for places to drill holes for cable management after i get the mobo on Thursday.

I am open to any mod suggestions for the Antec 1200! And thanks for all yall's help so far!

Cable management is one thing Antec fixed from the 900 to the 1200.

There is already like 5 or 6 holes in there already. Plus, drilling would scratch up the black interior.

Have you seen the pics on Newegg of the inside of this case?

Of course I've seen inside of it, lol, I don't buy stuff without knowing as much as I can about it. I wasn't completely sure about having to drill holes for wires, but what do you think about the fan grills, do many ppl cut those out?
post #19 of 45
^^I've seen some do it, I personally have also just not with that case and for me it did improve airflow.

Very nice setup. FYI, that fan is LOUD as *****! I just bought one this week and I am returning ASAP! It does blow a arse load of air though.
