Hi, my name is Bob and I'm a junkie (hardware junkie that is). If you have any tendency to become a hardware junkie get a fulltower case. Pay careful attention to the case and the power supply. Be sure to buy something that won't be a pain to work on and that fulfills your needs.

If you are planning on buying a new hard drive consider SATA. The SATA may not provide much boost in performance but you will appreciate the thinner and longer cables. Cabling becomes very important when you start putting a lot of drives in your case. I have six hard drives in my case (2 on the mobo, 3 on a Promise PCI card, and 1 on a SATA PCI controller) and cabling becomes a very important issue.
