In the past I have bought quite a lot of computers, almost every time I buy a computer I am faced with a string of seemingly unsolvable problems, so I have decided that it would probably be a good time to build my own computer, therefore removing the need to go through annoying vendors who are overcharging me anyway.
So I have basically compiled a list of the components that I have looked at and decided look pretty good, after having one of my friends tell me what to look for and pointing out when he thinks that things might not work etc. I have come up with my complete list.
Here is the list of components with prices and links:
Intel® Core™ i7-940 2.93 GHz 8MB Cache
OCZ StealthXStream 700-Watt Power Supply - ATX, 120mm Fan, SLI-Ready, SATA-Ready, PCI-Express

TOTAL: $2,100 USD
So I was wondering if anyone could tell me wether that would all actually fit together, weather all that stuff is compatible (I'm fairly sure it is...) or if you know a better part then please post.
Also I'm looking for a case big enough to fit all of that, if anyone knows where I can get a decent one then please post as well.
