Default YaY taxes.... toy time

Taxes came back 400 more thaN expected, so time for added toys.

Want a 2nd gtx 260, but have only a 520hx psu, so 2 pci-e. So looking for a new psu but not sure really how big to go, and needs 4*6 pin pci-e.

I'll be dual folding on it, with my q6600 OC'd. Only 2 HDs and right now an Antec 900 case.. AKA Fan king. Like to keep it under 200cdn

Also, I need a real case for my folding rig, Problem with that is, my 8800gt has the T-rad, and fans so its fat, and the mobo is a 650i, so I want to try and get my 8600gts back in to the game, which means ditching the 92mms, 25mm thick, and hopefully use the case side fan as the cooler fan.

I thinking maybe getting a new case for my main rig, and switcing the 900 to my folding rig. I sorta like vthe cosmos, but i keep it on the floor which is "industrial" rental apt carpeting.

So I'm looking for suggestions on a cheaper 100cdn case, and/or a good replacement for the 900... bewarned I run a Tuniq 120.....

Thanks y'alllllllll


Edit......

I'd really like modular.. soo much cleaner

I have two 750 PC P&C silencers, one is to run my folding rig once it finally gets built and i just hooked up a second 260 to my other one today Excellent psu's and have 2 6-pin and 2 6+2pins, no complaints at all. I got them for $105 and $110 on sale...i think the lowest you'll find them right now is $120s...but still good.

edit\

Cheapest i can find right now is $121:

PC Power & Cooling Silencer 750 750W ATX V2.2 EPS12 24PIN Active PFC Power Supply Blue - DirectCanada

but get from NCIX.com, you know that

This would be my other choice: Corsair TX750W 750W ATX 12V 60A 24PIN ATX Power Supply Active PFC 140MM Fan - DirectCanada

edit again\ So you want 2 260's in the $100 case....trying for a full tower? That's a lot of power in a little case

Coolermaster 690 is a decent case for sub $100 with good cooling: Buy COOLERMASTER [RC-690-KKN1] Coolermaster CM 690 Mid Tower Black ATX Case 5X5.25 5X3.5INT No PS Front USB Sound Firewire & eSATA

Tuniq is a go with the 690: Tuniq Tower 120 in a CM 690? - [H]ard|Forum

Yup...and best part...got the 260 for $50 client decided to up his build from a 260 to a 295 so he sold it back to me for $50 since I'd already made the purchases. I didn't complain
