I suggest you get the gskill because its without rebate, because I still havent received my rebate from OCZ for my Memory. Also that case that I suggested before had waaay more room than the one that you just posted.

Phone OCZ up about the rebates, they are pretty good about it if you nag them a bit.
Though they said my rebate was in the mail 10 days ago, I think it's time for another call.
Soorena want the hotline number?

I cannot really say anything about that case as I have never worked in it, it looks like everything should work.
The corsair memory is better, but like Soorena mentioned, if you don't like dealing with mail in rebates, then go for the G.Skill.

Though I think your supposed to wait 8-12 weeks for the rebate, but I think your past this time right?

I think I will need to find a cheaper Power supply, because I am already over budget, without a harddrive or a second disc drive. Any suggestions are appreacheated. I can go up to $1100 at the absolute highest. Any ideas of how to stay in budget?

DO NOT SKIMP ON THE PSU! Most important component of the computer.
But this PSU is $25 cheaper and is reliable.

Also I thought you were going with a midrange build which would include a dual core CPU like E6750 and if you do then you will have enough money for a hard drive and optical drive. Also that graphic card is too expensive get the one that jackflash stated which outperforms the one you stated.

You will probably be ok with an Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 as said by Soorena. http://www.newegg.co...N82E16819115029

The Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 has the basically has same performance as the Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 and $85 cheaper.
