I am attempting to build my first new system, which is going to be video and 3D animation only with Vegas5+DVDR2.0, Boris red, Photoshop etc.
I was wondering which case you might go with for these specs.
I prefer a case that dosen't have a display window as I want to keep the case cool and quiet.
I was looking at the:
Antec Solution Series "SLK3700AMB" with 350W Power Supply
Antec "Sonata" with 380W Power Supply (I was concerned that it might be a bit tight)
Asus P4P800-E Motherboard (2 Firewire, 8 USB 2.0, 10/100 Ethernet, 6.1 Onboard Intergrated sound, that I would disable to use M-Audio Card)
Intel P4 3.0 GHz 530 HT Processor
Crucial 184 Pin 512MB DDR PC-3200 x 4 2GB
Drive #1: Maxtor 80GB 7200 IDE Hard Drive
Video Drive: WD 250GB 7200 IDE Hard Drive
Vantec "Stealth" 120mm Case fan
PNY NVIDIA Quadro NVS 280 Video Card
Pioneer 8X DVD +/- DVR-107D
M-Audio 410 PCI Soundcard
Windows XP Professional
Please leave me any additional suggestions for anything I might have missed as again, this is the first system that I would have built.
