Hi Spongebob

I prefer Antec/Chieftec case line myself. You'll need to ask yourself how many drive bay's you need, what color, front usb?, silent?, etc...

For motherboards you usaully can't go wrong with Abit but it depends if you need RAID, onboard sound, etc.

Browse around since they have pretty good pictures to window shop (and nice prices).

I've been through quite a few cases but i'm really liking the Antec Sonata silent series i'm modding currently

First off, welcome to the forum!

I can't help you with your specific question, but my suggestion would be to have more descriptive thread titles. There are a lot ofpeople who might be able to help you who won't even bother opening a thread with a vague title like "Im ready".
