    So my brother wanted a computer for his associate (he's a lawyer, associate has a terribad laptop only) so this is what i built him

    Rosewill FBM-01 Dual Fans MicroATX Mini Tower Computer Case

    EVGA 02G-P4-2645-KR GeForce GT 640 2GB 128-bit DDR3 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card (he wants a dual monitor setup for her)

    NETGEAR WNA3100-100ENS USB 2.0 Wireless Adapter

    Western Digital WD Black WD1002FAEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

    ASUS DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS Black SATA 24X DVD Burner - Bulk - OEM

    Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit - OEM

    G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL

      Got this all in today, will update later (after work) when I complete the build, or throw a fit if something is DOA.

        Build went smoothly, ran sisandra scored 5.62kpt on the overall which is better than "70.38% of results" not shabby for a pretty limited budget build.... FYI if anyone reads this and considers this case, put your HD in the top slot in the tray, and any dvd/blue ray burner in only the bottom slot or it will cause u a headache!
