I posted a while ago about asking for advice on a build and due to that, was going to research for a bit longer until I made my build - however, my hand is being forced and I must build the new system soon. So I would like to present the following and ask for last minute advice. The order will go in Sunday. My only major concern is my case - mobo combo. I'm confused if this problem is fixed, and if not, I'm looking for another passive motherboard.
Code: Select all
Case: Antec P150 $110
MB: Asus A8n-SLI Premiun $166
CPU: AMD X2 3800+ $296
Heatsink: Ninja $40
RAM: Cruical 2GB DDR 400 CL3 $155
Video: EVGA 7800GT $250
Zalman VF700-AlCu $30
HD: 3x Samsung SP2504C $300
Optical: DVD Burner $40
DVD Drive $30
Monitor: Dell 2405 $800
Let me know if you have any suggestions about what I can do with the mobo/case problem. And anything else you see odd (components, approx prices, etc). Thanks alot!

you could go cheapo and get the asrock 939SATAII mobo, it has a passive northbridge.
alot of those little fans mobos come with can easily be replaced. zalman and thermalright has many coolers for them
