    7.fans (size + where they are and intake/exhaust)
    8.chip cooler, ram coolers, etc
    9.extra stuff
    10. Temps (Celsius please)
    example would be (this is just random for examples sake):
    p4
    1. Lian-li 60 case
    2. gigabyte 667 ultra
    3.processor = 2.4b
    4. memory = ocz pc 2100
    5. hd = WD
    6. ps = included
    7. fans = 2 tornados (80x80x36) intake
    8. X dream SE (cooler master)
    9. rhoebus

    1. Have your pick, i'm not too fussy on cases as I usually mod 'em anyway (i go with cheap cases and make 'em better)
    2. Albatron PX845PEV-800
    3. P4 3.06ghz
    4. Corsair XMS3500
    5. WD 120gb w/ 8MB cache (I use seagate, but WD's have very nice performance)
    6. Enermax 550w
    7. as many as ya like :) Depends on your case really.
    8. Volcano 7+ for cpu, heat spreader's that come with the corsair memory :)
    9. Lights, lights, and more lights.
    10. Aim for 'bout 40 C (CPU) under some load.

    Why do I pick such stuff? Well, umm heh... just coz.
    Anyway that be what I'd put together if i had the cash.

    AMD!

    1. Antec PlusView 1000AMG--I like it and it weighs enough to kill a man if you drop it on his head ;)
    2. We'll see in September
    3. Athlon64 of some sort
    4. Corsair XMS 3500, a gig at least
    5. Dual Maxtor SATA drives in RAID 0 --my boy AshG tried this out over at Envy News, and a SINGLE Maxtor SATA drive puts a lot of IDE RAID configs to shame. Scary.
    6. Antec TrueBlue 480W--it looks cool. And it's quiet. 'Nough said.
    7. Cooler Master TLF-R82s--2 in front intake, side intake, and dual exhaust in rear. Works very well--my case temps are 84.2F (29C) in a room that's about 74F (whatever that is in C), and that's with thermal controlled front intake fans. Tasty. They're quiet, have enough CFM for simple case fans especially if you have a lot, and they look nifty.
    8. Guess we'll have to see what Athlon64 coolers there are... heh.
    9. A copy of Anvil, UT2003 64-bit, 64-bit Photoshop, this monitor.
    10. About 40C full load and around 25-30C case.
    11. 256MB NV35 :D

    b/c im super picky :P lemem show you
    1) needs to have front intake fans where i can SEE where the air goes in
    2) removable mobo tray
    3) must have side window (dont have tools to make one, and no a window kit wont do)
    4) must look good
    5) must be alluminum (no stell :P)
    see im picky no case fits that except the LL warrior on Xoxide but thats $214 for just the case itself (and fans), but the intake is more CFM than the exhaust (i think thats bad i dont really remember or take the time to think about it)
    see look at that pickiness!
