You do realize that Silverstone make some of the highest quality cases out there.

Lian Li, Silverstone, and the Stacker are all on the same quality chart so it does not matter. Plus I would nt prefer to have a 1000w CM case psu running my 5k rig. You would find something more along of lines of this in my rig
Newegg.com - SILVERSTONE ST1000 ATX12V / EPS12V 1000W Power Supply 100 - 240 V RoHS, CE, FCC - Retail

EDIT: Ah i see your going 2x226BW for extra widescreen. Unless if they updated the technology you can not run dual-monitors with SLI or Crossfire setup I believe. However I was in the dark for a few months so this may have changed.

I would go with one of these if you could.

Newegg.com - EVGA 768-P2-N887-AR GeForce 8800Ultra 768MB 384-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Retail
Newegg.com - XFX PVT80USHE9 GeForce 8800Ultra 768MB 384-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Retail

Preferably the EVGA

make sure you overclock even the Factory overclocked versions even more if you want even more power of these monsters.

I don't want this guy to waste his money though really..plus once again If im not mistaken SLI does not let you run dual monitors at the same time.

Also krazyg Crossfire HD X2900XT beat SLI 8800GTX's for a lot cheaper...the new Radeons scale in crossfire a lot better than the 8 series in SLI.

Honestly with two monitors like that I doubt a single 8800GTX could handle games at max settings with excellent framerates and thats what your going for here.

Once again I highly suggest going Crossfire HD X2900XT since I believe that SLI does not support multiple monitors but Crossfire does.
