Its all compatible and actually some good chocies. Some people come here and pick the worst parts , lol. But those are pretty good.

As for a case , I like the antec 900 , thermaltake armor , or a really nice lian-li case.
As for cd drives I'm clueless I just get whatever looks good.

If you want a quieter case, take a look at the p180 series cases from antec...I'm a big fan of them (my next case). I'm not such a big fan of the Lian Li cases...maybe aluminum doesn't do a good job dampening sounds...

Might want to look at a SLI compatible mobo if you want to go that route in the future...

I put the SLI comp mobo aside due to games I will be playing, I don't plan on overclocking or playing any outragious graphic games like Crysis and what not, I am a simple gamer, MMO being the gyst and RTS's. Im just looking for a comp that would run these smooth, basically high end WoW or Warhammer Online stuff, which I don't think its CRAZY like Crysis.

Frankly, I like the choices you have made and especially that power supply is an excellent unit. They are very solid components.

I would have chosen the P5K-e wi/fi board just for the heck of it. It has sli which you don't want to use (however, easier to sell later on), and it also has Wi/Fi, which if you don't want to use, also makes it more marketable later on when you decide to upgrade again.

Either choice will work, but those are my thoughts. This should be a very nice rig.

I went with the CD RW because my wife likes to burn cd's still, thats why I have it and also cause I still like playing some old school games like diablo2 and what not. Do you have any experience with that xfx card?

also, crazy question. But is there a item that i can put in so that I can hook up my tower to a TV screen? so i can watch movies?

Also it seems that the 2nd MoBo I chosen is on back order, Is there any other MoBos you guys suggest that can mix well with this lot?

I'm still running XP on my main pc but have Vista on 2 others with no problems other then I like XP still the wife hates Vista but she uses XP at work and it's different, my daughter has and likes Vista so it's all in what you prefer at this point Vista will give you DX10 for newer games and the driver support on newer components has gotten a lot better.
