Hey guys, as the topic says this is my first time building a PC. I’ve settled on i7 920. I’d like any advice on which case best goes with this setup, but any other components on the list which someone feels might benefit from a change is fine by me. I’ll be OCing the 920 a little, perhaps to ~3GHz, but nothing major.

I’m also a gamer who’ll be getting an HD 5870 really soon to play on my 1920x1080p 24” LCD and occasionally on my plasma TV. Xfire 5870s is an option for the future.



Intel Core i7 920 D0

Cogage True Spirit CPU Cooler

Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD5 -or- Gigabyte GA-EX58-Extreme

Corsair Dominator 6GB DDR3 1600MHz

Seasonic M12D 750w PSU (for its ultra-efficiency)

The only other part I’m in the market for is a case and maybe some extra fans. If anyone could offer any suggestions on a good case with decent cooling I’d be very grateful. Price isn’t an obstacle – I want something that will be good for a few years to come.

That’s all the info I can think to provide, but if anyone needs anything further then please let me know.

Thanks in advance for any input.

If you do not mind having a big full tower case I recommend the antec 1200.

With XFire .... I'd recommend a full tower w/ OC'ing.

The Antec 1200 w/ a Signature Series 850 W PSU or an HAF 932 w/ a Corsair 850W HX series.

An alternate would be the Antec 902 in a mid tower case.
