i have a few question
if there a fan controller can totally cut off the power to the fan?
because sometimes at night i dont want to much light on

Uh, your link was to a 3K system?

Oh I see you ordered 21 case fans, LOL.

You might want to fix some of that.

just get the E8400 for less money. that's all you need.

Do not use DDR3. Way too expensive. Your friend is wrong it is not faster. It may be faster next year, on the new systems coming.

No. I even went to one with IE and I never even use it. I think it has to do with ethe fact that it's a secure link, but that doesn't explain why others can see it. I have been able to see other wish lists that weren't secured.

I would get the Logitech G5 mouse http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168..., or the Razer Copperhead http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... . Also a better CPU and cheaper sound system. As for cases look for the Cooler master 690, I believe it's only $10 more and one of the best cases for fans. (no side view panel though) A popular case with side panels is the Antec 900. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

These are two popular LED fans. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

We really need a budget.

Nice controller dirtmountain. I see it comes in black or white too.

I couldn't see your list when I clicked on the link. You won't need a lot of fans if you're not gaming. I definitely wouldn't get LED fans, they are annoying, more so with time, and especially if you want to turn off the lights at times. It sounds like you should get a couple 640gb drives or larger (d/l 24/7), video will eat up space pretty quickly. Definitely save yourself some money and go with low latency DDR2.

if you just want it for basic computer usage then avoid all this part selection and crap. any computer you will pick up retail from a circuit city, best buy, staples or walmart store will satisfy your general needs. id advice to get something in the mid range of what the store offers and avoid the lowest range it will last you longer. no need to buy the highest range.
