My apologies, I will go with the PSU that gt7 suggested.
I am considering two cases now, can you tell me the best and worst quality of each?
Thermal take : Newegg.com - Thermaltake M9 VI1000BWS Black SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Computer Cases
Antec: Newegg.com - Antec Three Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Computer Cases

Thanks so much guys

Personally I'd go for the Antec 300, it has more 3.5 bays and less 5.25 (seriously who needs 6x5.25" bays? :freak. Also the 300 mounts the PSU at the bottom which makes cable management easier, and stabilises the case better.

That is a nice build....enjoy.

As far as cases go....it is personal preference...just whatever you like.

My own personal theory is to get a nice roomy case with good cooling....I don't care much about looks....most people prefer looks.

yea, that kind of where I am struggling right now is the look of the case.
all in all though, I don't suppose that either case is going to do to much for me beyond what the other can offer. I really appreciate your help in this guys. thanks!
