    Silverstone makes some really nice stuff. Check them out, IMO.

    edit: Why GTX480? HD5970 is faster, runs cooler etc etc etc

    Everything looks good on it so far, I'd grab a mechanical drive for data storage and backups, as the space on the SSDs is limited. At this point, SSDs are not plug-n-play, so you'll want to look into setting them up for maximum lifespan and performance. Skyguy knows more about this than I. Hopefully he will be able to pop in and give a rundown. If not, browsing around on the forum a bit will provide answers.

    If you do check into a mechanical HDD, check out Samsung's F3 series. They're very fast and reliable. Seagate is, at this point, junk, and WD is middle of the road.

    I don't know too much about blurays, I only used my optical drive for ripping CDs and installing windows.

    For cooling, I am using a Prolimatech Megahlems, and it is ace.

    edit: it doesnt come with a fan, so you'd need to pick one up.

    I don't know much about Blu-ray drives but I would like to recommend this one to you.

    I wouldn't worry about 8X or 10X writing. The discs are still rather expensive and a good rule of thumb is to burn at the rated speed of the disc. With some of the Sony, TDK and Verbatim BD-R I might burn at 8X.

    I understand that the free ImgBurn is a great software for burning BD media, at least I have used it to burn at least 50 discs without a failure yet.

    Lian Li hasn't impressed me in the last few years. They seem to be stuck in stagnant designs for the mid towers. I do like the PC-X2000B, but I imagine that's a lot more case than you need. And the V351 also, but it's a micro. Think I'd look at the Silverstone models, particularly the FT01B Fortress. The Corsair 800D is all the rage at the moment, but its airflow is quite limited. And supposedly NZXT is set to release some non-budget-oriented cases soon. Most everything else on the market right now are just your standard steel & plastic traditional affair with little of interest.

    If I might I would recommend my very own Lian Li case, the PC-X1000B. Saves you some bucks over the PC-X2000B, and they are not that different actually compared to cooling and such. The 2000 version is a bit more stylish, but I like it simple and minimalistic:P

    For CPU colling I would recommend Noctua, again the one I have myself Noctua NH-D14. One of the main things I prefer it for is the way it blows. While many others blows directly towards the motherboard this one can help with the total airflow in your computer. Many others just spreads the heat around in your cabinet, including down on your graphics card and RAM bricks.

    Check it out for yourself:P
    Keep your words soft and sweet, in case you have to eat them.

    I reviewed both the Lian Li X1000 and the Corsair 800D in fact I have my Rampage 3 build installed in the 800D. I'm working with Lian Li right now on getting both the X2000F and the A77F samples for Pure OC to review. We may end up having to wait until after Computex.
