Final Time for Comp Parts

OK guys. You read it correctly. This will be the FINAL time I post this type of message. Many of you guys are getting tired of reading through threads like this one, and want a break, so after I get some questions answered (professionally), I will quit posting this thread cause some of you are getting tired of this. OK. On with the parts:

Case: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...224&CatId=1509

OR

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...935378&CatId=0

Which case is better. I kinda like the second one better, but i dont know any info about the cooling supply and PIN connector. Can someone help me on this? Can someone also help me about choosing fans for the second case?

Power Supply: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...6&Sku=D15-1000

Processor: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819116196

Motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813138260

Whats the deal with SLI? Some reviews say that this mobo is not SLI supported, which is where my video card says it is SLI supported. Can someone answer this question for me?

Hard Drive: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822144235

Memory: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227060

This memory doesnt say if its dual channel support. Does anyone know for sure if it is or not?

Video Card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814127189

Optical Drive: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827152053

Sound Card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16829102176


Monitor, KB, Mouse and surround sound speakers i can pick up at circuit city. I just want to know if all those parts above are compatable with each other. I know i've asked this question many times before, and some of you are getting tired of repeating answers but this is my very first time acually ordering comp parts from the internet, so i want to make complete sure that everything is compatable with each other, and that I'm getting the absolute best deals. So, if someone can answer my questions, give me some advice, or some suggestions on what is better or what would save money, I would like that a lot. Thanks.

BTW: this comp will be used for gaming (modern such as COD 1 and 2, Battlefront 1 and 2, SWG, Warcraft, Starcraft, Halflife 1 and 2, KOTOR 1 and 2, etc), DVD editing and viewing, programming, web developing, music, internet, etc

I can answer the memory question, dual channel compatibility does not make memory any different other than that they are tested together as a pair in a system, if you get two identical brand/speed/size sticks of memory that are in 100% perfect condition then they will run in dual channel, often two sticks of a totally different brand will work fine as a dual channel pair as long as they are the same size and they have the same frequency and latency.
Often selling as a "dual channel kit" is a marketing ploy and you will save money buying two single sticks of the memory.

Neither case is "better" in my opinion as they are both budget case and it is down to personal preference on design more than anything else.

The cpu is compatibile with the motherboard going by the listed technical details and the motherboard does seem to be sli-compatible from the spec.

dont get ticky! It does not state it is dual channel so they have not been tested in that exact pair, but if they are both error free sticks then they WILL run dual channel if your board supports it.

"dual channel" memory is no different from any other memory apart from the fact that they have tested the two sticks in that kit in a testbed together.
