1.) thermaltake cases are MUCH, MUCH better, why are you wasting your money on that crap (just my opinion, sorry if i offended anyone)
2.) you need a 24pin PSU
get the 600W OCZ powerstream

I have the exact same case except for the lcd,They are actually a pretty good case with plenty of room and good cooling,That power supply will fit no problem,Just make sure you do like diablo said and make sure you have the right adapter for your board.

you can't use an 20-24 adapter though

you have a high-end system and you HAVE to go with either the ocz powerstream 600W (520 might do) or PCP&C products, or maybe the enermax 510W SLi
