i actually have around $1600 so thats why i excluded the monitor in the price, also I would like some case suggestions because I heard the 260 and 280 gtx's are so big that they don't fit in some cases, and i want good airflow

Please read my comments tell me what case you like and I will then suggest ones scroll through this and pick ones you like the look of and I will try and find you the best cooling in that style. the only style I don't think you would fit it into is a desktop/htpc case. you want a gtx285 its worth the extra cash but upgrade through step-up at a later date if it will risk buying lesser components now.

The Cool Master RC690 is a very good case, and can fit any card.
