Never had a problem with any of the above running Linux

My boards were Tyan, Gigabyte, MSI and Asus and I didn't have problems with
them.

Power Supply: Thermaltake or Corsair (550-750W)

For a noraml dual core machine and a card of the 8600 GT class 550W would
IMHO be overkill.

THE CASE: ANTEC 180P OR 182P, don't even think about anything else...

And if you need it a big bigger CoolerMasters Stacker is very nice.

They also come with ports in the back for liquid cooling if you really
want to get serious about thermal control.

Given the price of efficient water cooling equipment, it only makes sense if
you want to overclock. Otherwise you can build quiet machines with good
cooling with conventional methods.
