This may seem like a dumb question but I'm thinking about building a computer and I've been looking up parts on sites like newegg etc. The windtunnel looks very appealing and has alot of good reviews, I know nothing about the technical aspects, I'm pretty much learning as I go along, anyway, I was wondering if a 5.25" bluray drive would fit, I don't want to start purchasing things and then realize after that the stuff I get is'nt compatable.


Other parts I'm considering: Samsung EcoGreen F2 1TB 3.5 Sata Internal Drive
Corsair CPMSU 750V Power supply
ASUS P6T Deluxe
GeForce GTX 285 1GB 512-bit DDR3 PCI video card
ASUS DRW Internal Burner
Sony optiarc black SATA internal bluray drive (Not burner)
G.Skill Trident 6GB(3x2GB) DDR3 2000 (RAM)
Intel Core i7 920
And of course the XCLIO Windtunnel

Like I said, I'm pretty new at all of this so any advise would be helpful.

I see no reason not to go with Windows 7 if building a new PC.

As far as that case, I will never have another case that does not include a washable air filter. I have to lug my computer outside 4 times to my wife's 1 time and our computer's are in the same room. He Antec Sonata has a filter, my old Antec tower does not.

Also, fancy lights look nice, but I tend to watch my monitors. And, fancy lights do nothing for performance, consume power, generate some heat, and do nothing for performance (worth repeating). But that's JMHO.

BUT, the primary job of a case is to protect the internal devices from kicks, bumps, and most importantly, heat. This case has outstanding cooling capabilities.
