I'm surprised no one said anything about the Antec 600. I wouldn't get it @ $90. I would get the Antec 300 if you are set in getting an Antec case. Another option would be the Coolermaster HAF912 + a couple of CM R4 fans.

Yeah, another psu comment. Corsair, Seasonic, XFX are all good psus.

Otherwise, I think the 1366 is better, but just my humble opinion.

Perhaps look at the P6X58D-E motherboard. Great board and easy to overclock with.

if said somebody would've said it, would there be place for more comments? :)

now that we've opened up the argument, 912 is nice but 922 is better. of course its more expensive, roughly at his antec's price.

or go for a ps04b *runs fast

Wow thanks for all the input guys!

I'm not sure yet what route I'll be going with overclocking. Tempted to get a Heatsink just in case however. I'll for sure look into that Coolmaster. :)

As for cases... Yeah I really needed some advice here haha. I've since found another case that I liked however; maybe you guys could comment on that compared to what's been suggested?

NCIX.com - Buy NZXT Hades ATX Mid Tower Case Black 5X5.25 4X3.5INT No PS Front USB Audio eSATA - HADES In Canada.

NZXT Hades for $75.

As for the P6X58D-E mobo... not available at NCIX sadly. :(

I'm leaning towards the ASUS Sabertooth I55 to be honest. Though the ASUS P7P55D Deluxe, Gigabyte P55A-UD4P, and MSI P55A-GD65 are all very nice as well.

I don't know about that Hades case... I used to have a case with a door on it. It was a hassle to keep on opening the door for the DVD drive or in your case, the Power On button...

Just get the HAF912 @ ~$55 and some CM R4 or Gelid fans...
