I should of ask this question before I ordered the parts last time LOL so please any help I would very helpfull.
$1200-1400 Is my budget right now.
I have a Monitor, I7 920 CPU, EVGA GTX 285 Vid card, DVD burner , Keyboard and Mouse to use.
I will be using this for games Like Crisis and othe high end games that come out. I will also be doing vidieo editing also.

What I am looking for Is a Good MB for overclocking with just air not water. I will be using a I7 920 CPU ( i already have this).
Th MB also needs to have Fire wire and good raid set up.

Along with the MB I would like to find the memory that works good with it also.

Hard Drives: I would realy like to use SSD's for a Boot Drive but do think I can fit that into my budget so I was thinking of using to standard drives in Raid and then a fast big HD fo the aps and vidieo. Suggestions on what drives to use would be very helpfull.

Case choice is hard everyone has there favaorites but I was looking for one that cools very good but also not noisy.

Can't help you much with your build but I just ordered a HAF932 case. Alot of people have it and it can cool very well with only air. Only prob I read that is has is with dust.
You can just DIY some filters for cheap though.

As far as the Case I was looking at the LIAN LI Lancool PC-K62. I havent seen to many folks that have it yet being that is is fairly new, But saw some very nice vid reviews of it on Youtube.

I have a EVGA MB already but reay hate the time it take s to boot up going threw all the self checks. So I was looking for good input on what MB's Overclock very good and folks seems to not have much problems with. and what ram seem to work good with that MB also.

Hard drives: SSD is the way of the future and are a huge incress in performance but dont no if I can afford the cost of them right now so looking for the next best thing for a boot drive for windows Vitsta 64 bit and then next the next month or so I should be getting the preorder for windos 7 pro in.
