I'm eventually wanting to overclock and such (mainly when I'm about due for a new setup) and it was just easier to do it now than try to add it to a case later. Plus, it wasn't incredibly expensive (just $150 for everything ready to go out of the box) plus it's quiter, more efficient, and you can discount the cool factor when it comes to computers....at least I can't. (I didn't sound like a salesman there did I?)
Again, thanks for all the suggestions. I'll keep you posted (at irregular intervals probably) on my progess if anyone is still paying attention.
I'm still paying attention just for the hell of it. This was pretty funny:
"that's why I keep saying the PSU is OK, but then again, I have no idea what I'm talking about."
My suggestion is wait a while and try later. If that doens't work, I just take it into the shop. My dad buys all his computers for his business from there, so they do all our work for free. If you want you can mail it here and I'll take it in
"Jack, will you call me, if you're able?"
"I've got your phone number written, in the back of my Bible."
Well, I'm coming to you live......for now......from my computer. Keep your fingers crossed. Thanks for all the help guys. If it wasn't for this place I'd still be chipping golf balls into the open case on the floor.

Got a new one. That appears to be the problem since it's running fine now. It's a little hotter than before (~98° right now under moderate load), but I still haven't figured out the problem with the case yet. I'm just happy I have anything working at this point.
