couple of choices:
Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER COSMOS 1000 RC-1000-KSN1-GP Black/ Silver Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case - Computer Cases

Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER HAF 932 RC-932-KKN1-GP Black Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case - Computer Cases

btw with a 920 you want triple channel ram ie 3x2gb for 6gb total.

Take a look at the OCZ gold or some of the gskil ram as it will be cheaper than the dominators. While great ram it is a bit overpriced. Get speeds of at least ddr3 1600.

Yeah I was looking at the HAF also. I already bought the Dominators so..its kinda too late i guess to change my choice, and they are ddr3 1600. Thanks for the case suggestions btw.

Are you planning on picking up a third stick of the doms then to be able to use triple channel?

Some boards will let you run them in dual channel but it does take away advantage of triple channel.

check your manual to see if it does but I would eventually want 3 sticks in.
