Ooo, both look pretty sexy. The PSU looks like it will be able to provide a stable power supply for a demanding system. SLI rated, reputable manufacturer, quad 12v rails...

I haven't caught up on what's to be anticipated for the M2 socket, but even with Vista and a 64 bit OS on the horizon, I can't imagine this unit being inadequate. What do you plan on doing with it?

Take a look at the Asys freedon tower. Its expensive at $135. But it is BTX ready and has some really cool features. It has room for three 120mm fans, one of whick case be mounted in the front fairly high so it will blow directly on your RAM ans CPU. The lower 120 wil blow across your HDDs. It is a mesh design-even the 5.25" bay lids are mesh. think computers.org has a really good review done by Kris Brozio and if you have any questions you can ask him directly. I did and I think it is the most forward looking case you can buy. I imagine it would last a lifetime.
