What I don't understand is, that you are paying 170 dollars for a Mit Tower case that doesn't even come with any special cooling, or anything special at all.

Correct me if I am wrong, but the thing doesn't come with anything that gives temperature readings, which many lower end cases have.

Well I don't Have a Specific reccomendation but for 170 you can get a really nice full tower, 170 is way to much for a mid tower.

I'd say just get one, and put the money to something else, but that's just my opinion.

Great set up otherwise, going to be a beast.
i agree...dont SLi the 7800GT...just get 1x 7800GTX 512mb

I say go with one of these cases, but remember, it's my opinion.

As for the graphics card, the 7800gtx 512mb would be great, but it will be very expensive once released. I say just go with a 7800gt or gtx; preferably by evga.

yeah, great idea i also recommend that, back on the mobo issue i would go with dfi purely because of its reputation as a high-end mobo manufacturer

MSI makes great motherboards at an economy price. Don't think they, anyway, are close to being like Asus. My K8N Neo4-F is amazing for what I paid for it ($109CAD), and it was really easy to set up.
