    I dont get it why you guys are always buying an high tech case? That thing costs 190$ and you can get others way cheaper and fix instead of 4 gig ram 6 gig, bigger harddrive or what ever you want.

    Cooling is Important even though there are some other options, when buying a case it should last a long time and offer great cooling.

    An case wich costs 80$ would do it good enough imo :P Atleast mine does good and I dont even have any extra coolers.

    spending the exta $$ and getting a decent case is worth it, the better cooling on most gaming cases is a must if you want to OC or anything.

    An i7 can be overcclocked to 4ghz easily in several years when the computer starts getting outdated, it just may need a new GPU every few years and it will last you a long time.

    its called your first car :], but i mean honestly the case can look decent and who cares the cooling means alot more than looks. However many people take your standpoint and that's why they buy alienware and i personally think that's stupid but that is there choice.

    i'd buy it. $1299 is like 1018, that's not much for 12 GB of DDR3 ram, a 9800gtx and an i7 setup.

    if you bought an extra 9800gtx it would be a beast


    damn all you people buying new fancy stuff, makes me wanna go out and buy an i7 myself
