Forgot to mention I will need to purchase an OS. Windows 7 will put me back $100. Is there a cheaper case that would go with this setup?

Don't forget to add a dvd/cd writer in that.

Also if you plan on buying the 212 plus then get it off of Amazon, it's like $20 cheaper than newegg which bumped up the price recently.
