not a fan of the lights and ricy look anymore

More the classy look.
I think I'm going to go with the Antec one.

Newegg.com - XCLIO Windtunnel Fully Black Finish 1.0 mm SECC Chassis ATX Full Tower Computer Case - Retail

I know the fans on the side are LED, but I think you can turn them off some how. It's lookin' like a really good case, especially with the airflow and the cooling of 2 x 250mm fans. Well ventilated too, with the ventilation holes on the other side, along with a 120mm fan for exhaust at the back.

yea I even saw that one and liked it. The reviews on it being flimsy cuts me of from it. I hate flimsy cases.

Yup, this is exactly what I am doing. 8xxx series cards use the same gpu as the quadro fx 5xxx series cards. The quadros just have better drivers and support. Theres also some features on the gaming cards like overlay that are disabled that you will want for maya/3dsmax and theres was of enabling it.

The mobo stinks NO fire wire support and doesn't fit right in the case.

I knew I had a bad feeling about the motherboard. I needed to tatoo the BIOS so my SATA Rom and HDs would work with it. I even needed to bring it into Geek squad to have them help me fix this.

This computer gave me more of a pain in the fanny than any other computer I've ever made. And still is please go (HERE for new thread)

Edit: Another thing about the MOBO. There isn't any sensor for the CPU. So if it over heats there no warning. But in BIOS there is a guide where you can enable a warning even though theres no sensor..... strange....
