I like these cases so far:
1. ) http://www.newegg.com/app/viewproduc...156-148&DEPA=1 On this one you will need 6 fans, I don't know if you don't mind noise or not.

2. ) http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...roperty&DEPA=1
Do you like any of the cases on this page? These cases are a good brand.

3. ) http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...156-132&depa=1

I will be adding more as I see more.
Also what color do you want?

Okkkkkkkkkk! So here is the newEST computer plan I have, this plan is basically made of all the great input I've recieved. I think I have everything right? I changed alot. I think if I take out the power supply that comes with the case and add my 480w thermalake one that would be a pretty great case right? Check out the coolermaster, to me it seems pretty good.

So if I understand right, I am buying the same fan for heatsink and the case?

Any more ideas would be very helpful

The case I have curretnly has 1 backside 80mm and a 120mm fan .

So??

This is for the 120mm: http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...999-012&depa=0

And for the 80mm's I can use one for the case fan and one for the heatsink:

Everything is fine but, this is the fastest 120mm fan http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...999-342&depa=0 .
If that doesn't really matter to you then get the one you put.

dont get the raptors in raid0, its a waste of $176 . . .

really, it SHOULD be about 2x the performance, but after tests, its usually a 1-3% performance difference (and in a couple of benchmarks, a single wd740 raptor beats two in raid0)

get ONE raptor, and a barracuda 120/160GB

do you really need a z-680 and 500watts? you can get the z-5300 and have almost 280 watts and still save almost $100
