    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.

    Thanks, Why_Me. Yes will need that as well. Going through your entire setup right now.
  4. 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.
