Great Case

HEC 6C28BBX585 Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case 585W Power Supply
HEC 6C28BBX585 Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case 585W Power Supply

Pros: Great case - expansion is good, power supply was easy to connect and MB was easy to mount

Cons: only one sata power connection and the fan was small for the case (that's an easy fix though)

Overall Review: Over all you can't beat it (at least right now with free shipping)

Wonderful

Antec ISK Series ISK 300-150 Black 0.8mm Cold Rolled Steel Mini-ITX Desktop Computer Case 150W Power Supply
Antec ISK Series ISK 300-150 Black 0.8mm Cold Rolled Steel Mini-ITX Desktop Computer Case 150W Power Supply

Pros: Where to start? This case isn't the smallest out there, but the "extra" space is worth it. Very easy to mount everything, getting everything in was pretty easy given the small space. Runs as cool as I expected as well.

Cons: Getting the motherboard in was a bit of a challenge, but not worth losing an egg.

Overall Review: Note: I used an SSD for the hard drive so that probably helps with the system temp.

Great Board

Pros: Performs great with Ubuntu (see Cons). Very easy to install with great motherboard map provided.

Cons: No biggies other than I was hoping to create a hackintosh. Drivers aren't there just yet for it (at least that I could find).

Great card

XFX GeForce 9800 GT 512MB GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card PVT98GYDLU
XFX GeForce 9800 GT 512MB GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card PVT98GYDLU

Pros: Easy to install, drivers weren't a problem on Vista. Only added a few degrees to the case, but with the performance of the card that's fine.

Cons: a bit loud, but it is fan based an expected.

Overall Review: If there's still a rebate deal, choose wisely.
