+1 for the Lancool PC-62K case. It's not a fancy noob case, and its by Lancool which is Lian-li.

Hmm, maybe I will go back to my previous idea of the Antec 900. What do you think?
A new 1.7k build in an antac 900 Case is "wrong"...sorry..
Quote:

The currently planned amount to spend is right at 1.7k, and at the time if your posting that message it was 1.9k. Besides, I already sufficiently justified the "no budget" clause in the OP.
It wasn't your 1st Post I was referring to it was the "title" of your Thread.."No Budget"..anyhow..if your planning on spending 1.7K why wouldn't you be going with the X58 Chipset and a 920 DO Chip..
That along with some decent 1.6Ghz RAM..WD Black HDD..good PSU (around 750W) and a high end GPU will surely meet your Budget quoted.
And most definitely go with a different Case then the 900...thier are mant out thier reasonably priced and far superior..

I just finished giving the OP a revision. The possibility of an i5 CPU was scrapped, and due to popular user demand, I have allowed a return of the possibility of an i7 920/x58/tri-channel core system build possibility, albeit against my better judgement. Please see the points marked ***New*** for greater detail.

Thank you all very much for your help.

I have been considering replacing my current motherboard selection with the EVGA P55 SLI 132-LF-E655-KR LGA1156 Intel P55 ATX Intel Motherboard. It is $184 taxed/shipped, which is only 20 dollars more than my current mobo. This one looks to be of higher quality and more feature-rich, though my perspective on motherboards is somewhat limited and I ask for your insight.

Also, I found an Intel X25-M Mainstream SSDSA2MH080G2C1 2.5" 80GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid state disk for $220 taxed/shipped, and at that price I am highly considering implementing it into my overall build. What are your thoughts?

I just purchased my CPU and motherboard, changed my ODD of choice, and updated the OP accordingly. I decided to commit to the i7 860 and subsequent compatible motherboard/RAM, so the rest of this build should fall into place pretty easily.

Final purchases are planned to be made in the next few days if possible.
