CPU: E2140 thanks to BALISTX.
Motherboard: Asus P5K

Video card will be my BFG 8800 GT OC 512MB
PSU: Thermaltake 550W
HDD: going to be

Now I was wondering between two case's, here are the one's I was thinking about.
What do you think, which one should I get.

or

Oh yeah, the BFG 8800GT thats in my main rig now is going in this rig, that will be replaced by either ATI PowerColor 4870 1GB <-- already out or the 4870 X2 <--- when it come's out.
still deciding on the card as well.

590/690 over the 300.

They have better cooling and cable management and are easier to work in.
