If not I guess i could do one of those mods where the mobo sits horizontally but that would be very inconvenient, since I plan to use the pci expansion slot in the case, and i would have to reorganize the holes for the mobo, psu, and expansion.... yeah im not doing that.

any one have an answer to the hsf question?
Well the stock cooler for the 1055T is just under 2.75 inches tall measured from the bottom of the base to the top of the fan. Based on the standardized size of a backplate is slightly under 2 inches wide, I'd guess that case has around ~3 inches of clearance for a HSF. So I think it would fit but I don't own that case to confirm this. It's the best I can do for you though.

I just needed some logical answer like this to make me feel good about myself. Thx so much +rep.


Okay, so I have updated the first post again. I am over 400 dollars, which is okay, but I would really like to get below 400 dollars. Does anyone know anything that I can cut back on, or have anything for sale right now thats cheaper?

Also anyone know about that tv card's ir port? I want the remote to work from the front of the pc, but I cant really figure out if I can wire an ir receiver to the front. Could someone who actually knows about tv cards give some advice on this?

Things you can cut back on:

-You can get a smaller Hard Drive

-You can save about $20 if you get a Sempron and hope it unlocks.

-You can save a couple bucks if you buy two of these instead of that 2x1GB kit

They used to unlock pretty frequently. I'm not sure about the unlock rate now, as I haven't heard anything about them in several months.
