~$500-600 SC2 Ultra Machine!

APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: Within the first 2 weeks of September

BUDGET RANGE: ~$500-600 flexible, but don't want to sniff $800.

SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Eating SC2 on max settings

PARTS NOT REQUIRED: I definitely don't need a keyboard, mouse, any kind of storage, I'm probably going to be getting a new monitor soon but it isn't one of my priorities. I'm not sure if any of these parts are still useful / super relevant, but I have this junk laying around from old projects and if it can be tacked on without losing too much performance why not

2 512 MB Sticks of GEIL pc3200 DDR400 GE5123200L RAM
2 1 GB Sticks of Hynix 2Rx8 PC2-53000U-555-12 (hymp512u64cp8-y5 AB-C 0732) RAM
2 512 MB Sticks of MT4HTF6464AY-667e1 PC2-5300U-555-12-ZZ DDR2 RAM
1 ATI Radeon x800 Pro 256MB
1 DVD R/RW Drive Model TS-H552
1 Western Digital VelociRaptor 80GB 10000 RPM Drive (Figure I could put my OS (Windows 7) and SC on here, good idea?)
Like 5 or 6 Sata Drives adding up to about 5 TB of storage (it isn't a necessity to use them all)

Sorry about the labeling of the RAM, it's difficult to find out the exact model of these XD

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: Newegg or Tigerdirect are fine I guess

COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: United States

PARTS PREFERENCES: No Preference

OVERCLOCKING: Within Reason

SLI OR CROSSFIRE: Maybe

MONITOR RESOLUTION: I want to get a 20+ Inch HD Widescreen Monitor, and like I said this machine is mostly for SC2 so whatever might work best for the best price I guess.

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: Case is super important to me, I'm a very aesthetic person :P

    That looks incredible! Thank you so much!

    If you could spend an extra $50, what would you change? Or would you see no upgrade worth making?

    Also, any other case suggestions or do you truly feel the M59 is far and away my best option?

    Again, thank you so much!
