    PC Advice - building custom rig...

    I've recently upgraded my main gaming PC but am on the lookout for a decent new case for it - any suggestions people?

    Currently it is not overclocked, but I have plans so any good looking robust case with plenty of cooling.

    Intel E6750 Dual Core @ 2.66Ghz as standard
    Gigabyte P35C-DS3R mobo
    2Gb DDR2 6400 Corsair Dominator RAM
    640MB 8800 GTS overclocked
    500Gb Seagate Barracuda sata2 Hdd
    23" LG TFT


    I'm looking to get an uprated cooler for the CPU too - was thinking along the lines of an Artic Freezer Pro like I have in my other system ( Athlon 3700+ highly overclocked ) Are these good on the Intel Dual Cores?

    Any advice apprectiated

    i have a thermaltake case and it good for cooling.

    i run my 3ghz p4 at 20% overclock to 3.6 and it runs around 35-41degress. make sure you get a decent CPu cooler.

    Go for water cooling noting more quite.

    Avoid the Gigashyte board. Asus or ABit are where it's at.
