get the gtx280. with that budget you want the best stuff. However, I have read a lot of bad reviews from Asus as far as video cards go. I'd try to find another brand maybe. just a thought.

^there is really not much reason to get a 280 anymore with the x2 kicking around for not much more.

Not by any change do I have that particular one, but I have the blackline and very familiar with nzxt.

Well guys thanks for your help, but it boils down to one decision. Either the
The GTX280 on a 780i
or the 4870x2 on the x48 (leaning more to this one)

both will be a 2x2Gb with the Q9550CPU
as far as the case, doing comparisons now.

900 Pro:
120mm optional inside of case
Rear fan control
9x5.25 or 9x3.25
Water Cooling ready
Steel Case

Con
Hard to replace parts
No E-Sata

Charka Pro
PSU at the top
Switch

Con
Not meant for water cooling

Tempest Pro
Water Cooling Ready
Easiest to replace parts

Con
Plastic

The GTX 280 isn't the best. the 4870 X2 is.

I would go 4870x2.

And i would probably go with the Antec 300/900

Forget the Antec 900!

It's a terrible case, honestly...

1. It's heavy as it's made out of steel.

2. Half of it is plastic.

3. The fans don't have any kind of dust filters.

4. For what it is, it's about 40 dollars overpriced.

5. The power supply in the bottom causes all kinds of issues with the cords length.

6. Wire management is neigh impossible without a significant amount of cutting.

7. Everyone has them so they aren't unique or different.

Those enough reasons for ya?
