:laughing: OMG What an idiot I am, LOLZ. Well, with a 920 i7 that would make it $1904.92 looks like I will need a cheaper case and mother board.

Okay with a videocard change and case change I got down to $1689.92 I chose the Coolermaster Cosmos 1000 at $179.99 and the BFG GeForce GTX280 with Far Cry 2 for 329.99. Although I believe I can get the HAF 932 for about 169.99 at New Egg.

You might want to look at the CoolerMaster HAF 932, I'm not sure how it compares in price to the Cosmos 1000 in $s, but if you can find it cheaper you might want to go for it, monstrous airflow.
