Default Couple of questions...

Which case is bigger/ better value? Newegg.com - ABS Aplus ABS-Black Pearl Black Aluminum ATX Full Tower Computer Case - Retail
or
Newegg.com - SILVERSTONE TJ09-BW Black Aluminum ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Retail

What's the difference between these video cards?
Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more!

Is the diamond the best one there? Seems like all of them are the same just different prices...

Between the cases, they mostly have the same features except for the external drive bays, so I'd go for the cheaper one, if I were you.

Between the graphic cards, I know of Sapphire and HIS being the top brands for ATI cards, but the DIAMOND being the cheapest, an HD 3870X2 is an HD 3870X2.

I don't like the stickers in the Sapphire that's why I asked b/c if I were to get a 3870 x2 I wouldn't want it to have a sticker
