View Full Version : Speakers , Casing .... Help

11-10-05, 12:59 AM
Hi ,

I am building a new gaming rig for myself . This is what i am buying :

Processor : AMD Athlon X2 3800+ @ 322USD
Motherboard : Evga Nforce 4 Sli ( free )
3D card : Evga 7800GT ( getting the mobo + card deal off newegg @ 380 USD )
PSU : Enermax 535 Watt @ 80USD
Monitor : Have an old spare 21inch lying around
RAm : OCZ 2GiG Platinum @254 USD
DVDRW : Benq OEM @ 43 USD
HDD : WD 250GB SATA II 7200RPM @ 116USD
Logitech G5 Mouse + Ordinary keyboard @ bestbuy + Headphones @ 100USD

Grand Total : 1295 USD

Now the part where i am stuck is the speakers and casing which i know nothing about . I want the speakers to be 5.1 and the casing to be full tower and it should be properly cooled ( 'cause i wanna OC my Rig ) . A little lights would be good too :) . I want the total system to stay as close to 1500 bucks as possible . And i wanted to ask one more thing , my room is around 12 x 12 feet and i wanna spread the speakers in all corners , is it possible ?

I would really appreciate you guys helping me out .

Thanks for the reply , i'll look into them ... :)

Btw , how are the Thermaltake Tsunami cases , one guy is recommending them to me .

The Thermaltake Tsunami is a great case but it is much more expensive then the Antec I mentioned previously. The last time I checked the Tsunami is selling for about $120. I personally prefer LianLi cases but again they are pricey. If you can budget an extra $50 then I'd suggest you go for the Tsunami.

I have been reading a lot of reviews lately , from several hardware sites . My final choice is the Thermaltake Armor case :

I know the added price of the speakers and the casing is high , but i think i will manage a few more extra bucks . I just cant pass out on all those great features its providing . Anyways , thanks for your help ENU291 :) .

Hey your welcome! That is what these forums are all about. Helping each other. That Thermaltake is awesome. I actually built a PC with that case for a friend not to long ago. It has some amazing internal airflow. You're going to love it. :)
