    heres one of my tuts on this, my first tut ever.. so it probably sucks now, haven't read it in a while, but it describes in plain english how to build a machine once you have the parts... http://www.antionline.com/showthread...hreadid=231871

    lol house. i think you need to check your diagram, a few things i can see are clearly definable (video/sound card) and probs like your FDD and HDD are swapped

    nice tut also....

    haha yeah well you know, like i said, my first tut. I basically learned how to build one (vaguely) while writing it, over the course of a few days, i would put bits of info into a tut, and eventually it came out that atrocity.. err.. masterpiece :P

    yeah though, its definitley got some errors, but at least i have learned enough to figure out it had errors since then

    Thats exactly what we are all here for, well, most of us.... to learn and to keep learning

    but i have to admit hardware is my forte and was really obvious to me ..

    Have Fun

    Can you guys tell me what you think of this stuff, and any suggestions you have? I'm not going to OC anything, so I'm not sure I'll need all the fans. I'm trying to cut down the price some too. Thanks.

    You may want to think of noise, lots of fans=lots of noise , A big fan that goes slower is quieter than a small fan that goes fast. A good solid case goes a long ways noise wise also. I have a similar system to what you are looking at i can tell you it will be very loud the way you have it. I changed to an Antec sonata case and that helped alot as it has a quiet powersupply a 120mm fan in the back and other wonders. I also replaced the stock cpu fan with super quiet one (I have 3 fans in the box, 1 on back, one on cpu, one on gfx card opposed to the 6 you propose).

    --edit actually four, i forgot about the powersupply fan on mine

    And I like the case.
