i would say, get a different case and buy a psu separately, but that psu is ok, yuo can get that and when its time to buy another 7800GTX you can buy a different psu

Ok so looking at the case that vaderpro suggested...

Are you guys in agreement that it is better and has a better psu and I should get it?

Will i still be ok with cooling if i get it?

Honestly if cost is an issue, which is it, i really would recommend a evga6800gt over the 7800gtx. (its like a $235 difference) Then you could get a really nice aluminum case that would last a long time and a good psu.

Oh I got the 24 pin thing from a review of the Mobo:

"...Be careful...24 pin power..."
