Its really not a metter of DDR3 or not. There are cases where DDR3 cards still suck (read 9600gso 256mb).
For $40 i'd say get a used 8600GTS or a new ATI card after a rebate (4650 or something.

Haha I know, I just didn't know whether it CAME with a drive or not and whether that drive was DVD or DVD/RW. Nowhere does it say that it does or not.

Edited the OP. Okay just picked up a BFG 7900GS for $36 shipped from Slytown. So thanks to Slytown I'm MUCH closer to getting this done.

I think I'm going to pick up that case and DVD/RW I pointed out in the OP as well (and that crashnburn suggested). Will do some painting .

BTW Mirror's edge ftw.

I really think you should spend the extra three dollars and get the SATA drive...

Alright now what's the best way to paint this thing?? Shiny pink with some red and white hearts is the objective...

Was thinking of using some 100 or 200 to sand the panels down, then 2 coats of grey primer (spray can) and finally a few coats of shiny spray paint, and a couple of coats of gloss...

Is that the typical 1-2-3 painting method?


Oh and a question...

so for the metal parts that are painted black, I'm sanding down, priming, and painting. What should I do with the black plastic parts? Sand them first?? Seems like you could just prime and paint directly no?

Lol, ,sorry for the confusion. The case does have a DVD slot. It's mounted vertically between the front of the case and the plastic molding/housing. When the drive is open it blocks that silver circle emblem.

Ah, I see. Yeah, it doesn't. My wife still really likes it though, so when I do her new build I may be getting one.

Let us know how the case works out!
