Default Christmas Monies!!!!! WHat to get?!`

w/ christmas coming up, i've found myself w/ many options as to upgrading!!! and i'm not too sure what i wanna upgrade!?

my choices are being this

my 2nd 8800gtx for SLi goodness

Pro's: i'll be able to play crysis much better at my native resolution!!
Con's: Crysis.. is the only game that needs SLi for my native resolution... and i'll still be stuck on my retarded asus board for a bit longer....

A new x38 or 680i Rev A mobo

Pro's: I'll finally be able to overclock my q6600... no more stupid ram problems.. no hella hot north and southbridge!!

Con's: Good-bye SLi

Coolermaster Stacker 830/Cosmos/Tagan APlus BLack

Pro's: All are fairly huge cases.. have great airflow, and easy to work w/ parts... the Tagan is my most wanted.. as its btx similar.. upside down mobo, rear mounted PSU similar.. more like exactly the same as its more expensive Silverstone Counterpart.

Con's: None that i can really think of??

W/ that said.. no matter what i will be buying a new mobo later on... and i'm not too fond on SLi as of now cuz i don't really need it.. so i'm thinking of just grabbing a new case... or maybe even case and mobo!!! cuz that equals a gtx.. lol...
Current Build:
Intel 8700k | 16GB G.skill Trident Z | Z370 Gigabyte Auros Gaming Extreme |
