I am building a new computer with the following components.

Motherboard : ASUS P5W64 WS PRO
CPU : Intel Core 2 Duo E6700 / 2.66 GHz processor
Raid Controller : Areca ARC 1220
RAM : Corsair TWIN2X2048-8500C5D
Hard Drives : (2) WD1500ADFD (2) WD5000YS

I would like suggestions on the following:

CPU Cooler - keep very cool - but easy install - no liquid

Uninterupted Power Supply - plug in everything

Case - lots of room and sturdy, motherboard slide out, easy hard drive access, top mount usb ports

Video Card - PCIe - moderate price

I am not building a gaming machine instead an intense data processing machine.

For the cooler you might want to look at the artic cooler 7 pro.

For the PSU first calculate how much power you need then just take a pick from any of the good brands, the best brands are silverstone and thermaltake, you cant go wrong with them.

For the gfx card if you want something around $200 then go with the ati 1950pro, if you want something a bit cheaper than get the 7600GT. They are both the best in their respective price ranges.

For the case just choose anyone that you like. I personally like the antec 900 case.
