Alright, thanx for the tips... well, I haven't actually started building any of the CPU yet, but I've been trying to gather some info before actually starting (I still dont have the Gs to spend on a computer system).

I'm looking for hardware that will last for a long time such as an expensive but sturdy case and an excellent cooling system (which I would save for a LONG time).

antec cases, either the 1030, or 1230 are super sturdy, extremely heavy mind you, but they can last ages and are great to work on.

well, a full tower is kinda pushing it a little. I was thinking of actually mounting the radiator on the backside of the case (outside) like those swiftech cases. The radiator I was thinking of getting was one of those Black Ice Xtreme ones. Has anyone ever used those before? They actually look pretty nice for a radiator.

if ur planning a water rig, u gotta get a full tower.  think about it, you need atleast a 2-4 cup res. to hold the water, you can't place that anywhere inside a mid-tower.  in my full tower, theres a space for a second PSU so instead i put a reservoir that was a bit bigger then a psu.
I recommend a 9 bay case.. ATLEAST!
and u can put the radiator on the top, leaving space for handles, cause you'll need them :D
