    OK well i am making a game plan for the upgrading of my desktop. im figuring on in 4 weeks ordering Crucial Ballistix Tracer 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) then for christmas ill get a EVGA 8800GTS then within a week after christmas ill order a new case, all new cooling fans, and 2 Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 RPM 250GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive and put them in raid 0

    all that is settled. I just need to choose a case + fans that can keep all this stuff cold

    Case: NZXT Zero Black/Silver Aluminum ATX Full Tower
    If i get the above case i would like to upgrade the 7 120mm fans it has with these..
    AeroCool XtremeTurbine
    but anyways the case and case fan part is all an if right now.i havent decided on a case for final.
    HDD coolers: EVERCOOL HD-F117 2-4 of these (depending on if i use my 2 ide 160gb's along with the 2 new sata's
    RAM cooler CORSAIR CMXAF1
    PCI coolers: VANTEC SP-FC70-BL 1 maybe 2 of these
    to top it all off
    Change out the fan on my AC freezer 64 with a VANTEC TD9238H 92mm Case Fan
    3 of these should do: VANTEC NXP-205-BK

    Total cost (if i buy that case and those fans): $401.04
    Total cost (no case and no fans for it): $150 (but i still have to find a case and upgrade fans for it)

    the NZXT has 6 fans in it already. but im never satisfied with fans that come with the case and id prefer to stay under $150. tiger has an ULTRA case i really like

    Ultra Black Aluminus ATX Full-Tower Case

    i like the 2nd one. dont see many cases with dual psu slots. would just need a cable to link the 2 and youd be in good shape

    i also like this one
    Ultra Black Aluminus ATX Full-Tower Case

    its the same case as i showed before but its blacked out and comes with a psu.. (that i wouldnt use on my gaming rig ever). lol i bought a PC P&C and i just dont think an ultra could replace it

    There are a few Chemnings, that are the same exact chassis as the Ultras as well. I think the Chemnings are actually cheaper tho.

    EDIT: My bad, it's Chenming. Here's their cases on the egg. http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=2010090007 50001651&name=CHENMING
