    That's a lot of money for a case that's just ok.

    The Antec Nine Hundred has a similar look, but cools much better for $56 less.

    You are going for the 10 series of Seagate drive, but the 11 series with 32mb cache are out, and are faster all around, and still have the 5 year warranty.
    Seagate 250gb 32mb $85 shipped.

    Use that for your backup drive to:

    Western Digital 160gb WD1600AAJS - $56 shipped. These are very fast.

    That's only $15 more than your case/hard drive combination, for a case that cools better,
    and a backup hard drive setup.

    there are more cheaper dvd burners than that Asus.

    meh case. wtf locks on the side panel and front door. LED :greddy:

    get a 7200.11 Seagate

    19" :greddy:

    that 8800GTS is the old one. get an 8800GT or the G92 8800GTS.

    I hear a lot of compatibility issues with Mushkin ram and Gigabyte mobos.
    you'll probably need to manually set the timings and proper RAM voltage on the bios for it to work.

    shitty PSU
