Here is what I am looking at. I think I got it right, but is there something I missed? I am not a hard core gamer mostly RPGs and strategic type games. I have a 30" Ultrasharp Dell monitor so my refresh is limited to 60 frames per second. I know some things are overkill, but they are what I want. I am just looking for any problems, holes. Also I do not need any bling, the case will be mostly hidden.

I should also say that the cost is not an issue.

I have changed things a lot, see next post

I realized that I really do not want to put my new computer where I was thinking of. I will be putting up and it will be visible. I also decided that I would be better served with the slightly smaller and lighter Lumos. I am 76 and moving heavy objects in not something I should be doing.

I'm not a configurator guru but it sure looks like a winner. Strong
Love the Noctua, it is so quiet!
Enjoy

I have ordered it. I had a Noctua on my first Dreadnaught DS computer and I loved it, never a problem and quiet.
