    I don't like the case. Maybe I am overlookng something but it only has one 80mm fan exhaust in the rear. And I don't even see anywhere to put an intake.
    So what's the Scythe S-FLEX SFF21F 120mm Case Fan for?

    Either way I would just get a good case with at least one 120mm intake and one 120mm exhaust.

    EDIT. The rest is great. I have the same burner and motherboard. I just went with the e6400 to overclock it instead of the e6600.

    EDIT #2. I guess the 120mm fan is for the heatsink.

    yep its for the heatsink , the only reason i got the case is that its big enough for the 8800GTS and most of the time i keep the whole set up with open covers anyway

    Looks good to me. I think you'll have more than enough power with that PSU, good ram, good board and a wise choice with the E6600, 4mb cache ftw.
