W00t! Thanks for all the helpful info on these forums guys. I originally ordered a Tornado 2000 case from 3dcool.com, but I have since changed my mind and have just ordered an Antec SL-1000B (the 1040B with no power supply) and am having them stick a True Power 480watt PSU in that puppy. I also purchased a 80mm Hard Drive cooling fan and an additional 80mm Smart Fan from them. I am very excited about getting it and am planning to stick an AMD Athlon XP 2100+, Abit KR7A-133 RAID mobo, 1 gig DDR Ram, and VisionTek Xtasy Geforce 4 Ti 4600 in it!! Very exciting!

This is going to be my first overclocking endeavor. I've already purchased vid ram heatsinks, a blue orb to replace the traditional visiontek fan, and an Alpha PAL 8045 for CPU cooler. Got the Arctic Silver Thermal Grease and Silver Epoxy on the way.

I have a question regarding the DDR ram. Anyone have any recommendations on the brand?
