I wouldn't use micro ATX... I have a full size motherboard inside of this

It is a smaller case but feels pretty roomy inside. The temperatures run a little higher then my previous case (which fell apart after 1 year in a dorm).

Once you start working, you can accumulate alot of money. I had about 3k going into my first year of college... Almost 1k of that has gone into books :\

We have the same video card... ;)

Geforce wasn't my primary choice, I was hoping for a X1900 but my power supply wasn't "efficient".

Also didn't mention, though not a huge difference in PC hardware:

I bet it does. The CPU and Video Card is almost $300 each, pretty cheap...
I had to pay over $500 for my 4GB ram. :(

www.half.com. This semester alone, I saved about $300 on books. The total cost would have been nearly $550, and that's for 10 books. 2 of the books together made up about 60% of the cost.

Waiting for the Crysis demo next week to really test it out.

Did it work?

The demo isn't out till I think Friday so I'll find out then. I actually got the system pretty cheap, got a prebuilt system on a big sale with a friends employee discount and the 8800 I purchased with his discount for I think $250. I think total it was around $900 which I'm not sure I could have built it for that cost.
