Just one last check pretty much to make sure everything is going to be compatible, and I'm not making some oversight that's gonna make me want to slit wrists when I build it.

Case: $99 XCLIO Windtunnel Fully Black Finish 1.0 mm SECC Chassis ATX Full Tower
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811103011 ://http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...82E16811103011 ://http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...82E16811103011

I plan on ordering once the 9800 comes back in stock at Newegg. Anyone have any idea how long that usually takes?

Also does anyone know of an in-depth up to date computer building guide on a forum or anywhere online? I don't think I'll have much of a problem but just in case I have any snags along the way it would be nice to have, since this will be my first time building one. Thanks. :thumbsup:

Looks like a nice setup to me, just remember to use standoffs to keep the motherboard up away from the case. You don't want it grounding out and ruining your board or anything else.. :huh:

I don't know of an online tutorial, but I'm sure someone here does. It seems like I've seen somebody put a link to something, somewhere, sometime... not much help but someone will come along with more and probably better wisdom.. :thumbsup:

Unless you're one of those big Nvidia fanboys, I'd suggest getting an ATI Radeon HD 4850. In benchmarks it is usually slightly faster then the 9800GTX, and it's cheaper.

Then again, you're ordering an SLI board, so you wouldn't be able to do crossfire with ATI cards on it. That is just a suggestion though, and the 9800GTX is still a pretty good card.

When nVidia releases the 9800 GTX+, the price for the vanilla 9800 GTX should come down if they haven't already. You're building a solid system. :thumbsup:
