    right, Im converting the gaming rig into a gaming/media centre system (for the living room) and i need some advice.

    Im liking the look of this case: http://www.ebuyer.com/product/130945 . But Im not sure how well the Earthwatts PSU would run a mATX style Gigabyte mobo, 2x 2GB of RAM, C2Q Q6600 and an 8800GTS G92 :confused:

    Plus, does anyone know of a really good wireless keyboard and mouse set taht would be good for general PC use and gaming?

    it's going to sound like a rocked engine in that tiny case, heat will rise, unless you have some very powerfull fans (and noisy)

    dont think you need you graphics card to be that powerful, try a 8600 or HD2600 for graphic, it will be alot less noisy

    If you want a keyboard for gaming, you could always look at the Logitech G15... not a wirless keyboard but the keys are illuminated, it has an LCD screen and on the fly progammable macro keys. I have one and they are excellent.... If you want something more basic look at logitech wireless desktops

    here are the cordless desktop systems from logitech http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/keyboards/keyboard_mice_combos/&cl=au,en
