The Sonata case that was recommended is a great buy. The power supply in that case alone goes for $90.

ahh ok. Thanks alot for the advice. I think all of this should go together quite nicely once i pick a good PSU and case. I might do the combo you suggested.

Also, if you want a quiet case, the Antec P180 and Sonata are good choices. Actuall, the power supply that comes with the http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811129036 will work. It's a mid to low end PSU, but should be reliable and provide enough power. The combined value is good for that one. Be careful though if you buy a PSU sold with and pre-installed in a case by testing your PSU before doing anything. The DoA rate of PSUs included with cases is much higher than those sold separate.

If you're looking for one of the best and cheapest cases for cooling, you can't go wrong with the suggested Antec Three Hundred. I've always liked Antec because you get a good value for your money.

If you want something a little flashier, but still want a good value, *some* Thermaltake cases are worth mentioning, such as http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811133071.

If you really wanted to go all out, then you can look at names like Lian-Li and Silverstone, or some brand models like the CoolerMaster Stacker and Thermaltake Armor line.

I would look at a case with great airflow which provides dedicated airflow to the hard drives aswell as all other components. Antec Nine Hundred comes to mind. Another case that should do a good job would be an Antec Three Hundred.

With those cases, you can even get a cooler like this Scythe Ninja, and not have a fan directly attached because of the case fan proximity.

If you're using Solidworks, I would go for either of these two cards to match your price range. The ratings are from the review SergeiV linked to:

[quote user="SergeiV"]Cipher, the OP mentioned that he will likely pick a Workstation card. That's why I asked why he wanted a workstation ard.[/quote]

Ah, gotcha. Thanks, I missed that as I was looking at the items, not the text thrown in between.

Refer to these charts for Solidworks performance.

One of Corsair or PC Power & Cooling power supplies should do the trick. Refer to the power supply calculator for proper wattage.

Also, consider buying a case that doesn't come with a PSU.
