Scene-setter: I am preparing to buy a new set of full-tower desktop PC components. The new desktop PC will run a suite of software titles, notably including the following: MS Windows 7 Pro - 64 bit with 32 bit XP mode available; MS Office 2010 Pro. Plus; MS Project Pro. 2010; IBM SPSS Grad Pack (Statistics Apps.); Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro.; and MS Flight Simulator X and (hopefully) 11. I want to use an Intel mainboard and air-cooled only processor up to a quad-core type.
Question: Any suggestions on a suitable Intel mainboard, processor, memory, and graphics card to power a 20" LCD flatscreen? Any recommended power supply ~ 500 watts? What components worked for your system? Thanks, Glennmartin

I can't recommend the Antec 900 at this time because it is really starting to show it's age. Nothing is tooless, and there is no USB 3 port. I personally would look for a different case with at least some tooless attributes, and USB 3 up front.
