This one is sans LED fans:
Newegg.com - Antec Three Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

It can handle three more 120s as well, two in the front and one on the side.

You can always just replace the LED fans if you see a case you really like.

I dont know if financing it such a bad idea ..... well at 22% or something dumb is, but not for a normal hey let me get my credit score rolling. Taking out a small personal loan (through your bank or credit union) and paying it off early is a great way to establish your credit score for future things that do increase in value ie: a home. Its also smarter then financing a car lol talk about losing value!!!

With that said bill me later and such things are only good if you already have the cash but want to hold onto it until later (ex: Build a cpu to sell but you want it to move before paying off the parts, you maximize capital that you can reinvest into another system to move again. Effectively doubling your operating cash ...) for the normal purchase, I agree don't finance

Cool looks good and if your happy that's what matters. Normally the consensus is that rosewill PSU's are not that reliable but I think the one u picked will be ok. Have a look at the reviews to see what other people used in their builds with that and what problems or non problems they had
good luck man

well i havnt been following along but i see some flaws in your build...


first, why are you getting a i7 950? save your self a few hundred dollars by getting a i7 920 or 930 and overclock it... the only difference bettwen each of the 9xx series quad core processors is the factory clock speed, the hardware is IDENTICLE. and overclocking an intel i7 is so easy a monkey can do it.

secondly, the i7 9xx series used triple channle ram, you have listed dual channel ram listed. get this ram:
Newegg.com - G.SKILL PI Series 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL7T-6GBPI

thirdly, dont get a SSD mounting kit, just use some double sided tape and call it good... and unless im mistaken, the HAF 932 comes with a SSD mount... ( but dont quote me on that )

4thly, if i were you, i would ditch the $130 keyboard and use that money to get a better graphics card... what i would do is get a cheap-o keyboard and use that $100 and upgrade to either a 480 or 5870. same thing with your mouse, get a " good enough " mouse and use the money saved to upgrade things that have processing power...

5thly, there isnt really anything wrong with the motherboard you chose, but i personaly like this one a lot more and its getting phenominal reviews... so id go with this one:
Newegg.com - ASUS P6X58D Premium LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

6thly, that CPU cooler you chose is absolute garbage... anyone of these will be much better, and if you take what im saying about spending less money on accesories and more money on things that have an impact on performance to heart, you can afford anyone of these heat sinks that are a million times better:
( order from most awesome to lesser awesome )

NH-D14
Newegg.com - Noctua NH-D14 120mm & 140mm SSO CPU Cooler

Coolermaster V8
Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER Intel Core i7 compatible V8 RR-UV8-XBU1-GP 120mm Rifle CPU Cooler

Corsiar A70
Newegg.com - CORSAIR CAFA70 120mm Dual-Fan CPU Cooler


of you have any questions lemme know
