    The CoolerMaster Elite 330 is a great one in that case IMO.

    I just meant cooling that will prevent overheating, it doesn't need to be perfect. My main concern is getting the best parts for the money I have.

    Trying to keep this alive.

    And the $300 eVGA 8800GT apparently comes with Crysis now, which would be a good way to try out the computer. There don't seem to be any compatibility differences between them, so should I just go ahead and get that one?

    Also, is a quad core really necessary? Will it have any compatibility issues with games, or problems with other parts or software?

    There will be no compatibility issues with the card. Get it and enjoy Crysis! :)
    As for the quad core, it's a good boost to have since new and upcoming games are and will continue to be optimized for multiple cores, which will give far better performance with quad cores than with dual cores. Of course, it isn't necessary to have a quad core, it's just an advantage if you've got one.

    There is going to be a patch out that will fix issues related to quad-cores and SLI. Plus, Supreme Commander does benefit from quad cores compared to dual cores.

    If You Hurry.......You Can Get This Case For.....

    Newegg is offering this case for $119.95. At the moment they're offering a $50.00 USD rebate. So, that makes it a seventy dollar case. I have applied for several rebates from Antec, and was successful in receiving them every time. This case is extremely well reviewed, and well, it looks really cool

    So after all this, what else do I need? RAM, PSU, hard drive, what else?
