can you post a link to your case?
October 5, 2008 3:14:43 PM

right i have got a problem. that case i have used for a build before.its a massive case and good build quality.BUT the side fan will disrupt the flow of air inside the case. so get a case with no BIG side fan.i recommend the Antec 900 or even 1200. or you can keep this case and turn up the side fan to cool the system in a brute force way.

your choice:)

I am confused, sry. What do you mean "brute force way".
October 5, 2008 3:28:52 PM

cooling the inside of the case use BRUTE FORCE kinda way just blowings tones of air on the component without thinking of the actual the direction of airflow inside the case.

understand it now?

Ah I see. That makes sense. Thanks for your help. I will switch to the antec nine hundred. You have been very helpful thank you so much.

I personally would stick with Vista Ultimate. I use it and it is lightning fast and has lots of cool features.

Animated Wallparers, Drive encryption, and you can back up you entire system so if it fails you have a back-up image.

That's a very good hard drive. I don't expect any memory issues with that setup.

Are you going to play games a lot? If yes, spend an extra $20 and replace the 520HX with a 750TX. You'd have lots more room for upgrades, including the ability to add a second video card when/if needed.
