Thank you very much.

Does anybody have any advice on what I should choose for the motherboard/CPU? I don't really want to spend $350 for a P67/2500k build. Is going H67/2400 a bad idea? This Biostar board would match my color scheme well...

I have a dimension 3000 in the loft at the moment, something is screwed on the motherboard, psu or hdd. Windows started running like rubbish, so i tried a reformat and the install failed on 2 separate disks, ubuntu installed though, but also ran pretty bad.

I have another computer with no propper case, so i would like to see the results of this dell case, see if I can do something similar.

Crap. That's a H67 board.
I guess you'd have to go with something like this.

I definitely understand why I would go P67, but my only option now would be a blue Asus board which costs $40 more than that Biostar...

Good luck! If you know what you're doing and have tools, this is actually a fairly simple mod.

At least you know where you stand with Asus, great motherboards, great RMA service/support and generally just good build quality. Not saying Biostar isn't but never really tried a Biostar board. But its down to you tbh

I love those mini cases. I have two, one modded (a lil).



And the other waiting to be modded.

I agree with Roweyi7, you can't go wrong with Asus, never had a problem with their mobo's. I also like Gigabyte, EVGA and MSI. MSI simply because of their color combo Black/Blue.
