    Hey I just upgraded recently myself. I went with the 3dfx voodoo 3 3000 and I don't have any complaints. However, I guess it really depends on the type of games you are going to play. As for the case how about this one. http://www.directron.com/blacmidatxca.html

    Its relatively inexpensive ($50 US with 230w PS or $100 with 300w PS), has lots of room for fans, good ventalation, and a removable motherboard tray (which btw you will really appreciate) and it looks cool too. Hey if your on a budget another way you can save a couple bucks is to use SyncMax memory its really cheap (unless of course you already have the hyundia PC133). 128 Mb PC 100 =$113US or 128 Mb Pc 133 = $118US, 256 Mb PC 133 = $198US or 256 PC 100 = $182US. http://www.computersupersale.com/Product/pc133sdram.htm

    However, I think I would go with 256Mb of RAM especially at these prices. Just my $.02.

    Duron 600@600 (unfortunately, see MoBo)
    Voodoo 3 3000
    256 Mb PC 133 SDRAM (SyncMax)
    FIC AZ-11 (unfortunately)
    WD 20.5 GB HDD

    Good luck!
