sleepyboy Yeah, probably going to go with the i5 since I can get that locally for the best deal. I was going to get the i7 but I swear it sold as I was looking at it. I want to go in and haggle for a lower price if I can. Fry's had the i7 for 999.99 but Newegg has it for 879.00. I know newegg would match but the i5 is 799.99 heck of a steal, plus it's in stock still, and if i can get a little more off that even better. Plus comparing specs the i5 is more than capable of handling whatever is thrown at it and is only down a few mhz compared to the i7 all other specs are identical besides the lack of hyper-threading which isn't that much of a downfall from what I been reading. The way I look at it, I can always upgrade the processor to a even newer model as they roll out. I threw a T9900 3.0ghz in my Dell M4400. It wasn't even out when this laptop was made but fits cause the same family architecture. Gives me room to upgrade, not much but still upgrade later on down the road for fun. Isn't the best part about doing this stuff is the disassembly then reassembly and it works, always sucks when it doesn't lol

FocusedSlayer I'd go with the Rosewill and upgrade the 2.0 usb to the 3.0 usb .

As far as the I5 vs I7 , not really a big difference and depending on what your using it for . I have a Toshiba Satellite with a I3 that almost does everything the I5 can do .

BluePanda Their silence series is pretty good - I have one from the first run on it; perfect for a home theater. SILENCE :)

CFHGARZA I recently upgraded to a Cooler Master Silencio 352. It's a smaller case but I has room for liquid cooling. Wire management is the greatest but it's a nice simple looking case, I'm not a fan of those big flashy things with tons of LEDs. I only paid $70 for it.

Cooler Master has some great cases -- past and present. I'm still rockn' a HAF 932 BE. :D

Well for laptop I decided on the Dell 7559. It's the best bang for the buck for right now and falls within my price range. Only problem now is do I want i5 or i7, both are adequet for my needs. Just for the i7 I would have to wait but the i5 I can go pick up today if I wanted. Leaning towards the i7 since it's well an i7 lol.
With a stock cooler for now -- it's worth leaving room for an upgrade as mentioned above -- but I'll take a peek at ideas.

sleepyboy Yeah I was thinking of that. Not sure how good the stock cooler is, but if it's like any of the past with less than stellar results.
