You should basically choose whichever case you like. You might save $20 or so going with an x4, but your performance will be lower and you'd need an AMD motherboard. The i3 is dual core, but each core operates faster than the amd quad core. m 0 l 2mnbars August 10, 2012 2:55:39 AM Ok, I am only changing the case (Found a very nice looking one), and the motherboard (Out of stock) Thanks for the help! 2mnbars P.S.
