    Yeah Yawgm0th gave a pretty good sales pitch. I think I will dump my AIW 9600 XT. From many reviews, I hear it is better than the 9800 Pro. We'll see how funds and my anxiousness goes. My video card will like ly be the last thing I purchase.

    Well you're going to need a video card, regardless of what you get. Other than that, looks good. I guess you could get a more powerful PSU for another $20 just to be safe, assuming you get the 6800, but I bet the 420W will run it fine.

    I have two more questions. That kingmax memory is ddr433, and the mobo only supports up to ddr400, will it work ok? And, do you know if the psu that comes with the case has sata plugs, cause I dont really want to have to spend the extra money on the psu if i dont have to? And for the video card, im just going to use my 7200 for my next two or three paychecks, and then buy the 6800.

    From the user reviews:

    1 Floppy
    2 CD-ROMS
    1 SATA Harddrives
    2 ATA Harddrives
    1 Radeon 9600 Video Card

    The only cons about this case is that the front cover of the case is kind of loose. When you unplug a USB cable from the front USB port, you need to be more careful, otherwise, you might take out the whole front case. But I can deal with that, that's a very small issue.

    For its price, I give a 2 thumbs up for this case
    I'd say it does from that, but there's a good chance it won't handle your system. It should work before you get the 6800, but get a new PSU when you do get it. Judging from the user reviews and common knowledge and personal experiences reagrdin case PSU, I'd say there's a good chance you'll have trouble when you go to a 6800 from the 7200.

    The RAM will work just fine. The idea is it will allow for a bit of overclocking room at no increased cost.

    Sure. Make sure the SATA is the boot drive so Windows will boot, but you can put in the IDE drive before or after the installation and access it.
