Alright thanks a ton for all the help, I just got a sweet deal on that 7870, Ill be getting 5 free games :3

Sleeping Dogs
Bioschock infinite
Farcry 3
Hitman absolution
and the new tomb raider

So it seems that if it will fit that will be my choice

Oh and for I forget this rather important question: Will the new PSU suffice?

If It's the Corsair TX550M, yes it should be more than enough.

Sorry for the late reply, but I was already aware of the terrible airflow in my current case. So I decided to upgrade the case while im at it and then leave it at that for a while. My GPU is in too so im just looking for a case to put my build in, Below I listed some appealing, easy-acces cases your opinions would be greatly appreciated

(I list these cases from newegg but I wont be purchasing them there, this are some of the cases I will be able to purchase easily)

COOLER MASTER Elite 430 RC-430-KWN1 Black Steel / Plastic Computer Case - Newegg.com

Antec Three Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Newegg.com

Fractal Design Core 3000 FD-CA-CORE-3000-USB3-BL Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Newegg.com

You cant go wrong with the Antec 300 but be sure to order at least one more fan as an air intake!

I personally like and have had very good luck with GELID fans! GELID Solutions FN-TX12-15 Case Fan - Newegg.com

However, Let me know if that will or wont work for you since you are not getting your parts from newegg!

My vote is for the 300r and some Scythe fans. The fans that come stock are fine for a while though.

I think this will be my final desicion, even though I am still wondering about the Fractal Design 3000, it seems to be a solid case anyone here that has an opinion on that case?

They are basically the same thing, except the Corsair has some minor differences that I like about it more.

I have never actually heard of them nor used them so i couldn't tell you. it looks decent but looks can always be deceiving! :P

The 300r you cant go wrong with either but in the specs it looks like it only has one fan included with it. i could be wrong but im not sure!
