First of all. I would like to say that the title of the thread was a reference to Star Wars Episode 1.
Thanks in advance to all whom help.

I do a lot of video game recording and live streaming. I have been upgrading my desktop over the past few months due to it's becoming out of date. Here are the specs of it.

Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate (x64) Build 7601
Service Pack: Service Pack 1
Processor: Intel Pentium G6950 (2800.0 MHz)
Motherboard: ASUS P7H55-M PRO (Intel H55 (IbexPeak DH))
Memory: 12 GBytes (Dual-Channel)
Display Adapter: ATI RADEON HD 6850 (BARTS PRO) [PC
Case: Not listed anymore. Scratched up though.

I am looking to get a new case, motherboard, processor. I could use some help with it. My budget is 80$ for the case and 300-400$ for the motherboard and processor(if that amount is too little then I can wait a little bit and save up.

I like the case I have now because it has blue LED's and it is very quiet. I would like one that is quiet and has blue LED's that I can turn off.
As for the motherboard and processor. I think they have been slowing down because I'm beginning to not be able to play some games. I would like an ATX sized mobo.

I think I am going to go with this. And most people have told me to get that mobo and processor.

Thanks

^ +1 on the above. I'd consider the case with the bigger fans - bigger fans = slower speeds = quiet.

I went with the Xigametek Asgard II (40$ Black Case With Orange Trim)

But is that my best option for the motherboard? and processor?

That cpu is the best bang for buck , it can be overclock verry easy to a high frequency , is the best for gaming. That motherboard is not expensive , can support a future Crossfire or SLI , support next cpu's Ivy Bridge.
