hi first time poster here,

i am building a new computer, i know everything i am getting but just cant decide on a case, here are my specs:

AMD Athlon "Barton" XP3200+ 400FSB
ThermalRight SLK-947U cooler
Corsair 1GB DDR XMS3200C2 Pro TwinX
Asus ATI Radeon 9800XT/TVD 256MB
Asus A7N8X Deleuxe mother-board
Western digital 80gb HD

i am looking for a case that will keep my system very cool and stable, i was thinking of getting a ThermalTake Xaser III Skull Black (VM3000A)but not sure if this will keep my system cool enough any suggestions?

This is the same mobo;but an improved version.

Secondly add a hard drive cooler;but that case should be cool enough;but if you're rich the koolance pc2-601bw or pc601blw has built in watercooling which can cool your HD,CPU and GPU no matter where you live.
