first off, the Antec 1200 is a great looking gaming case, has decent airflow but the sturdyness is (sorry antec) horrible. i had this case for all of about 2 weeks before promptly destroying it purposly because i was so dissapointed. its very very thin and weak material. even when the side case is screwed on it feels like its about to fall off very loose fitting and shaky. all in all bad case in my opinion. for the ram i would suggest corsair dominator 2x1gb 1066mhz. its very cheap well cooled and very fast operating ram. i currently have 4gb kingston operating at 399mhz and my friends 2gb daminator 1066mhz is way faster. WD makes exellent HDDs you said you wanted the 640 gb model, im not sure if that comes in the raptor model, ive only seen around 80 gb (i think) but the WD raptor HDDs are very fast and quit, awsome HDDs. video card is hard for me to reccomend it kinda depends on how much you wanna spend on the GPU alone and what you want to do with it. do research! i am running the nvidia 7800 gtx wich is pretty old but i can run crysis at medium settings so its not to bad. so thats about all my recomendations, oh yea look into the cooler master 690 case!

I just had a new build:
Case - Antec 900
CPU - Q6700
Mobo - Asus P5N-D
Ram - 2x2gb Corsair XMS2
HDD - Seagate 250gb
Video Card - HD4850
Power Supply - Thermaltake toughpower 700w
Cooler - Xigmatek HDT1283
DVD - HP Cheapamajig

If I did it over again,
Gigabyte Mobo, Q6600, and a radeon 4850X2 or 4870 (unless the GTX280 really dropped in price). I love the antec 900. If you get a xigmatek hdt-xxxx (nothing beats them for the price), be sure to get one of the backplate kits cause the pushpins blow and I nearly destroyed a motherboard getting them in. corsair, antec, thermaltake, ocz all good psus, get whichever has enough power and is on sale.
