What's your budget? Any particular things you are looking for in the case (mid/fulltower)? Also, 6GB? I don't think triple channel is supported but I'm not 100% sure on that one.

Shopping basket

It's a dutch page since I dont know a lot of english shops but here's whats in it:

Lancool Dragonlord K62 (Case)

Asus Crosshair III Formula (Motherboard)

Corsair Dominators 4GB DDR3-12800 1600 Mhz (Memory)

AMD Phenom II 965 Black Edition (CPU)

It's just something I put together real quick so there might be better options as for the motherboard n stuff
