You're all set... the Springdale 865 chipset rocks, I have the P4P800 with a 2.6C and a pair of Crucial PC3200 512 meg sticks. Stock Intel HSF is pretty good, I'm running at 3.12 and still cranking her up a bit more every few days. Antec TP430 also. Averages 44 degrees at that speed, folding (under load), no increased voltage needed.

Highly recommend the WD Raptor drives! :D

ABIT IC-7 or whatever one is the really uber mobo...

if you want to overclock that mother, use PC 3500 corsair XMS
Watercooling ( buy Burkes Exos lol )
good 430 Watt PSU

yeah sure that should do ya

What's wrong with the Xaser case...My other choice was looking towards the Antec PlusView1000 AMG...Or maybe an X-Spider Aluminum...just sorta wondering how many fans are needed to keep a system well cooled...I've read in a few threads that the Xaser dropped people's system temps by 5C at 100% Use. I'm not the kind of person who wants to spend extra cash on things that may not be necessarily needed!!

No need to go crazy with fans on a P4 system. Unless you like noise for some reason. I have the Antec sx1030, 2 exhaust fans up the backside, plus the PS itself as an Antec True Power with two low speed fans sucking out. A third case fan sucking in down low up front...where my drive cage is...cooling the drive. Nice and cool...I've overclocked almost 600 mHz so far, and CPU with the stock Intel HSF is still a nice comfy 44 degrees under load.
