    Hi guys, I'm building a new PC and I was just looking for a case and a tv tuner. I am also accepting advice for other parts. Here is the Computer so far:

    Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo E8500
    Motherboard: Asus P5QL-EM
    Hard Drive 1: Samsung SpinPoint F1 HD103UJ
    Hard Drive 2: Samsung SpinPoint F1 HD103UJ
    Optical Drive 1: LG GDR-8164B
    Optical Drive 2: LG GDR-8164B
    Graphics Chip 1: Inno3D GF GTX 280 Overclocked PCI-E 2.0
    Graphics Chip 2: Inno3D GF GTX 280 Overclocked PCI-E 2.0
    Sound Card: Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty Champion Series
    Network Card: Bigfoot Networks Killer NIC K1 Card
    Wireless Networking: D-LINK DWA-542 Wireless 802.11 Draft N PCI Adapter 802.11B/G/N
    Power Supply Unit: Amacrox Free Style AX1000-EP
    CPU Cooler: Cooler Master V8
    Operating System: Windows Vista Ultimate x86
    Keyboard: Logitech Cordless Desktop Wave
    Mouse: Microsoft Wireless Laser 6000
    Monitor: Dell 2408WFP
    Speakers: Logitech G51

    I'd like the case to have good airflow and preferably to stop most noise at a decent price, (definitely no more than $150) and the TV Tuner to have dual receivers and recording abilities.

    Thanks in advance

    Now i am also looking at a new screen as the Dell is too expensive.

    I would prefer an 24" or 22".

    The motherboard doesn't have enough slots for the cards you have chosen... or P5QL-EM isn't the correct part number.

    Hard Drive 1: Samsung HD753LJ 750GB
    Hard Drive 2: Samsung HD753LJ 750GB
    Optical Drive 1: LG GDR-8164B
    Optical Drive 2: LG GDR-8164B
    Graphics Chip 1: ATI Radeon HD 4850
    Sound Card: Razer Barracuda AC-1
    Wireless Networking: D-Link DWA-547
    TV Tuner:

    Also, would you buy this for around $1500USD??
