These are the specs for the rig i'm building:
1.Intel i5-750 Quadcore ($94)
2.Radeon 6770 HD ($78)
3.Cooler master vortex cpu fan heat sink ($30)
4.Asus P7h55-M, Dell xps 8100 DH57M01, Dell 8100 G3HR7.... or MSI P55-SD50 Motherboard ($47-$70)
5.8 or 16gb DDR3 Ram 1066/1333 ($35-$65)
6.60 or 80gb SSD SataIII ($50-$80)
7.1 TB 7200rpm HDD ($50-$60)
8. 500-600w PSU ($45-$70)

I found three potential casses that I like:
1. Raidmax Super Hurricane

I really like the appearance of the hurricane case, but I dont know if those fans are enough.

2. Fractal Design Core 3000
http://www.ebay.com/itm/181098463025?ssPageName=STRK:ME...

I like the fact that this has a lot of ports, bays, fans (big fans), and the dust filters. It doesnt have that "flare" or hardcore appearance id like, but I'm feeling the design and simplicity, kinda like apple. I really like this one.

3. AZZA Triton 401
http://www.ebay.com/itm/160832380312?ssPageName=STRK:ME...

My third choice. Really nice gaming feel. but im not feeling the two fans.

The better question is that with your apparent budget, why are you buying some significantly old hardware?

Here is a $600 build that would be much better than what you listed:

You can review the feedback comments for optional components as well.

I make $70 a week -$20 for gas -$$etc. Spending almost $400 is hurting me enough. I need a computer now rather than next year for school. A $200 build would be 15x faster than the 10 year old computer im lugging around. This build is powerful enough for my needs and good enough to last me for the next couple of years, with room for upgrades.

What I'm driving at is your components you listed above add up to $600 if you include a $50 case (and wind up on the high end of each range you listed). Sounds like you're aiming for $460-ish instead tho.

I was trying to help based on the data provided and apologize if I offended.
