(Full-server tower --- if you like super roomy case like I do :P )

 

Although Lian-li products are not cheap, but they are top quality with excellent air flow. I would recommend lian-li if money is not a major issue.:P

 

( I spent almost $400 CAD on my lian-li :) )

You are getting a little far afield of the original post you should really start a new thread in the recommendations section for processor cards etc or clean up the first post and have one of the mods move the tread.

 

As to the cards that question has ben answered in the video card section and recommendations section pretty much- anything but Asus is fine. Some of the 1900XT's ship with 1.1 memory these are faster and may be flashed to XTX if you are careful but that is a whole new set of topics so some searching and start a thread.

the TT kandalf case is the same size of the TT amor - its really the same excate case - just the front is different - check the specs --

 

and a case is a matter or personal choice also - even though the lian li is close in price to the TT cases - dosnt mean they are for everyone

 

i like them also - but the smaller one didnt seem to be enough room inside compared to the TT Amor and the later lian li was too long for me and closer to $300 - so $200 for a TT case isnt that bad really -

 

what ever works for you - and your personal taste - i dont like everything about the TT amor which is coming in today -- but for the most part - it will meet my needs - and hold me over till a new one comes out and new processor etc. -- then build a new system all over again - hopefully it last a year or two - :)

If you are thinking going water with Lian-li you can take a look of the thread by DuckieHo:

http://www.dfi-street.com/forum/showthread.php?t=67002

 

(For the sound card, I believe X-Fi extreme is better, for memory, Check this out: http://www.ocztechnology.com/products/memo...special_edition

Since you already planning on spending that much on the memory, might as well get the best one. And this ram is designed by ocz and DFI :P )

 

TT case is pretty good in my opinion. But just for personal preference, I still prefer Lian-li. If you planning on cooling with air, then you definitely need a huge case for the those huge Heatsink, like the Tuniq Tower 120 -- just got it today, or Zalman CNPS9700)

 

Just some personal opinions :)

i decided to get the TT amor full case - aluminum - arriving today

 

sound card - i havnt decied yet but like to stay under 100 - i want it to make music sound better

 

i am going with WC -- DD - as soon as the new Rad comes in -

i will place my order with DD - in about a month - in the meantime i try to fix up the wires and case -- i will remove the front flaps on the case

 

also would anyone know what front panel i can use to attach the usb ports and firewire that comes with the TT Amor on the top of the case - i think i like to make them work from the front of the case -

 

any suggestions which front panels i can use for that -

 

thanks if you can please post links to the items -

i got my case in - pretty nice - bigger than what i had for sure

not as much room as i though it would be -- still seems a bit tight with the wiring - i havnt done anything yet - i got the one with out the side fan - didnt want to block the window - i see how the temps are that way

 

if anyone has the TT amor case - i like to see some pics or ideas on how you cleaned up the wiring --

 

thanks
