Unless you need plan to get a ATI card and CF I would go with the DFI P35-T2RS.

The WD Caviar SE16 640Gb would be a much better choice for the HD.

The Nine Hundred is notorious for being a dust trap, you should consider the P182 or Twelve Hundred.

I'm still of the opinion that the P18X series of cases is too cramped. I know a lot of people here love them but I just can't recommend those cases.

Make a trip over from the rock to the sandbar and you'll appreciate my cablegami skills and change your tune - I was over to Marble last winter, you in SJ?

Yea Mibs I personally have the P182 and all I can say is that it's alright. It's certainly not the best, but it does offer enough to like for awhile. I basically took out the lower fan near the PSU and the upper HD cage (because the bottom one suits just fine). Now there's lots of room. I plan on rigging another Noctua fan near the video card when I get a chance.

OP, P5Q Pro is a decent quality board. Go with that.

Yup I'm in St. John's. If you've got skills to make the P180 the way I wish mine was then I'd love to see em!

I was forced to take out the bottom fan or my PSU would barely fit. I just wish I had chosen something bigger, but this was over a year ago...

i just ordered the 1200 it will be here on Friday i have the 900 it is awesome but u need to make your own fitters or else it is like mine is now(my filters fell off lol) with every single component covered in dust i have it open to live b4 the transfer to the 1200, the 1200 has built in fan filters on every fan it comes with, including the side window, and its a full tower so it has more room to work in. but for build quality 900 is great and so is p182 its up to u to make the choice for your rigs needs. oh and the cable management on the 900 is a . uv been warned lol see.
