whats wrong with thermaltake? i heard good things from them via ( newegg ) my all time new favoright store
looks nice, a couple things.
1: did u cut the window or did it come like that?
2: make sure to cut out those restrictive stamped fan grils (go for wire grills or none at all)
3: maybe instead of the volcano 12 you should get the thermalright sp-97 (i have the intel version of this hs *sp-94* and it rocks)
looking good and now you need to whip out the dremel and MOD IT
 aaah i feel like such a noob, i just saw the pic of the case and it came with the window [edit/]
lol a 5200 i no good at all, i would only use that if i was going for cheap office comp that would only run windows lol. you need to shell out for a little bit better graphics card e.g. msi 5900xt then flash bios to 5950 ultra ill give u guide if u want?
Please dont use that card i ahve seen it bench at 6000 or around there for 3mark 01 (and that is naff) sorry but seriously if yr doing gaming do it right.
Magick_man thanks bro. i see what i can do ( will add better fans too the led ones ).
Drac bro I play SWG/ kotor / Bf1942 galatic wars ( swg mod ) / gta vc /splinter cell. / and deux ex ( i want to get xii soon looks cool. ) and yea i can play all thease full grahics except except for starwars galaxie's lags like a b**** at full. so only runs it half way.
Philip dont worrie bro I am planing on getting the radion 9800 pro soon ( I want it red ) thats my colour scheme )
Btw btw Magick_man
cutting out the back plates ( on the fan's like that are mods as well ) in yoshi's on words on the TSS.
You can play about any game on a 5200, as long as you dont care about high resolutions. My buddy still has a GF2 pro, and he plays C&C generals, BF1942, and some other stuff. But he has a huge monitor which doesn't do very high res, so it's not a big deal.
