    Stacker 830 worth anything today?

    Thanks all, I went ahead and sold my old rig as a complete system inside the case. I do have my Silverstone TJ03 in storage somewhere that I have a harder time getting rid of despite the fact that it's outdated.

    Gentle Typhoon vs Fractal X2 GP-12?

    Receiver for Sunfire speakers?

    Budget is as appropriate. I'm willing to spend whatever is required to drive these speakers without compromising sound quality, but of course the cheaper the better. Bang for the buck is key for me. I don't want to spend a dollar more than I need to for extra bells and whistles I won't use...
