    Could you not stretch to a Antec 182 case,it a fantastic case for an extra 30 pounds.And if noise is a issue thats the case for you.

    Re: PC im about to build

    Looks fine, though you know it's traditional when including links to the items you wanna buy, you actually like to the item, not the general website

    I'd also change the case over to something with a better cooling ability. Also, DO NOT get your OS from E-bay, any bargin prices will be at best a misleading deal (such as an OEM copy repackaged), at worst, will be a pirated copy.

    http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Produ...oductID=527301 - £60.98 for a legitimate OEM Copy that you're entitled to purchase with bits for a new system.

    Re: PC im about to build

    Yep, looks like a mean system, cases are personal choice TBH. I'd also avoid egay for the OS, just not worth the risk and if there are problems then it's up to you to prove that the software is hooky(sp?)
