    Then What case you might recommend? The Antec case with biggest PSU is Sonata II with 450W.

    Dont' choose a case based on what power supply it has. No case out there will have a sufficient power supply. You have to buy one separately.

    Personally, I always get a generic case with good fan placement with no PSU. I also recommend buying a highend power supply as you will be dissapointed with the results from a cheapo.

    The NEO-F is a good board, it just doesn't have as much features as the Platinum. I love MSI boards. I personally have the NEO-F SLI board as I don't need the extra stuff the Platinum has. This board still has all the overclocking options I want. The Platinum has better on board sound, dual LAN and extra accessories. That stuff is a waste if you ask me.

    If you get a 6800, get a 6800GS. They are monster cards and people are getting them to overclock ferociously on the stock coolers. It will also play every game out on good settings. A 7800GT is also a good choice if you have the extra to spend.

    You may not be considering overclocking now, but you should build it like you will in the future so you don't have to buy components twice. Look for a case that is open and roomy and has good airflow. 120MM fans are better and will provide better cooling. I would never buy a name brand case as I feel they are a complete waste of money. I go to smaller computer stores to get my cases as that way I can actually see it in person and get a good idea of how well it flows air.

    I will think about this, how ever, As I do not plan to do OC if I get a generic case and with a PSU, I guess it will take me 100$ more( for example a P180+ True Power 2.0 500W compare with Sonata II )
    Yes, I do not need those extra feature, I guess I will just buy a Neo4-F

    I will guess either EVGA 6800GS or 6600GT as I do not play those high end game recently and in near future.

    Sure, I will go a local small store to discover everything and make them together. Actually, we have a store with free asemble service if you buy all stuff from them.
