Default Looking for a Good case/fan/PSU combo

I'm wondering If I can find a nice sleek black case that comes with a good power supply and all the fans I will need.

I'm gona be running a E7200 with SLI 8800GTS cards on a 750i FTW mobo, Havn't decided on CPU cooling yet...

any recomendations ? will 500w be adequite power ?

I saw this one, it looked pretty decent. I believe just that PSU was $120...

usually cases come with crappy psu's (and a 520hx or 610silencer would be fine) also most cases come with some fans but usually not all. So your best bet is buying a cheap case, if it doesn't come with all the fans buy some cheap fans, and buy a 520hx or 610 silencer.

thats a good idea, I remember Aspire getting on eBay and scored 10 Lian-Li fans for a good price

Newegg.com - ENERMAX Liberty ELT500AWT 500W ATX12V Power Supply 90V~265V (Auto Adjusted) UL, cUL, TUV, CB - Power Supplies

Thats the PSU, its decent at best, but not suitable for two 8800gts's g92

probably a 550/600 watt off of our recommended guide.. and wattage isn't everything, take a look at the power supply guide we have.
