A full tower would be your best bet, as it would allow the most room for air circulation. A mid tower would work, but with less extra space.

ur good cept ur ps...i would go bigger...like a solid 500W...just for safe side since ur vid card is so uber....try antec for qaulity and bang for ur buck...also...if u want circulation....get fans lots of them...if u want cooling..get water cooling. it might set u back a little bit but if you want a cool running system that is the way to go..i personally don't like it because fans do just as good and are 1. less expensive to buy and replace
2. can't leak out and fry your system
3. u don't have this garanguous radiator outside ur case

other than that it looks good man.

The Neo Power is Antec. Wattage isn't everything. high systems such as this should be supported by a power supply with dual 12V rails with 18 AMPS or more on each. Sure he can go more, but at the moment he doesn't HAVE to.

Water cooling is usally only for heavy overclockers. Almost all full tower cases have room for all components for water cooling. Though I would never reccomend water cooling for a first build. Fans can cool quiet good also, they just need to be placed in the right Area and also have a good rated CFM.

A case is really your choice as long as its ATX full or mid tower. The Antec Neo Power will do, unless you want to spend more. But it will work. and personnally I would never buy anything off ebay.
