    System!

    AMD XP 1900+ (1.6GHz)
    ASUS A7V266-e w/ RAID
    VisionTek Xtasy 6564 GeForce 3 Ti200
    IBM Deskstar 60GB 7200RPM HDs
    512MB PC2100 DDR SDRAM

    What would be the best motherboard to put with this processor? Where is a badass looking case that I can get that has enough cooling power (400watt PS, and with atleast 4-6 external bays)? What is a good HeatSInk Fan?

    Thanks

    That cooler loud? I have a vantec on my 1800+ and it is just about unbearable...

    I agree with Toolbox on the motherboard, the Abit KR7A/133-RAID is my choice.
    As for the case, the aluminum case are very nice, but a little high priced for me. Check out the Antec SX1040: http://www.antec-inc.com/product/cases/sohoser.html





    For the price, the cooling performance and PS along with other features is hard to beat.

    The MCX370 is a good heatsink, but the newer version, the MCXC370 is a little better due to copper bottom and helicoil pins along with a great clip that spans all three lugs on the socket:



    You can get this heatsink with a 30cfm Pabst fan which is relatively quiet and performs well.

    Hope this helps. I have an Abit KR7A/133-RAID on order to stick in my Antec case at the moment!

    Is there a case like the Antec one that does not have the front cover that goes over the CD bays? I like the Lian-Li PC68 Casing with the transparant material on the side. I like how the back slides out. If there is any case that has this can ypu please post it.

    www.newegg.com has that case for about 30 bucks cheaper.

    If you are looking for a larger case than that 840 I'm pretty sure that antec also makes a larger full tower that doesn't have that cover...possibly the 1240 series. I still personally like the 1040b though...I'll hopefully have one soon.
