Hello :)

Hello, I am fairly new to the PC game, let alone overclocking and high end pc equipment. I decided back in september, that I was going to build my own PC after looking up the shop prices for pre-built, then comparing them to component prices.

I was only looking to build a budget PC, but soon started to set my sights on more expensive components, in the end I ended up spending the best part of £400 (which isnt loads, I know). Well eight months on and I have now spent another £300 or so, on upgrades, including a Q6600, Big Typhoon, Antec power supply, more RAM and a MSI 8600GT. Damn its addicive.

Anyway, my main reason for joining this forum, is for a bit of advice on case selection. The Antec p182 seems to be a good case to go with, but lacks real cooling ability. Can any 1 suggest an alternative (BTW, I dont like the pimped look inc Antec900).

Hey, and welcome!

Now, as I say to everyone, the Antec P182 ROCKS! Of course you're gonna buy it, cause you're smart!
