The case is the one thing that I wouldn't crap out on. The case is the reason why you built the PC. Theres nothing as demeaning as looking as a horrible looking case when you get home. If you got home and were met by a cool looking computer, then you would rush to turn it on and enjoy the experience.

the x dreamer is a pretty nice case but i really dont like it
and it isnt really a high end case and isnt that expensive
get the 3200
and wait a while b4 you order as prices will drop as the 7800gtx is out
