the fans have 2 power connectors... 1 input and 1 output, so you can chain them together (kinda like Christmas lights)
and my 1st choice case is this one...
Newegg.com - Thermaltake M9 VI1000BWS Black SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Computer Cases
but its out of stock right now... so i found the one i showed you, which there is nothing wrong with that case (for the price) front usb and audio are outside of the door... so you can keep it closed while you are playing (which annoys some people when they have the usb and audio on the inside, and they have to keep the door open during gameplay)
so good luck, and sorry i didnt reply earlier... GT is the man tho...! he knows wuts up.
p.s. - i was looking at going quad core, and chose the 8500 to save a few bucks... and actually it was GT or Nukem who made the point for me about not going with quad cores... but there is nothing wrong with getting one if you got the cash to spend.... ya know?
good luck with the build!
