    I am (still) choosing the parts for my new pc. Now it's time for the case.

    My pc will be (more or less) an Q6600 (with an termalright ultra heatsink ),with an Asus board, 2 Gb ram and a 8800GT/HD3870 Graphic card. Surelyy i'll overclock it to 3,4-3,8 Ghz, and I dont want a Big case, so I think in the Antec Sonata Plus 550. Mainly because is the only brand my wholeseller has in stock and it include a NeoPower 550 W PSU (and it is cheap).

    Do you think this case is good for a system like mine? I mainly about cooling it.

    Thanks in advance

    I would choose the jupiter case on newegg, probably the antec900 though because it looks like its a mid tower case, both have like 4 120mm fans.
    and honestly, i wouldnt get a quad core, its practicly useless lol,atleast until programers for games realy start utilizing the other cpu's i think crysis does, not to sure on that though
    i'd go with the 3870 just because im an ati/amd fan. and + inte and nvidia are evil !! lol
    get a nice 600 watt psu atleast. fairly good ones can be bought for around 120 dollars, ive got a 700 watt ocz that costed 129 dollars, its an excellent psu.
