Since I am not a fan of fancy side-panel window cases, I would probably go w/ the Antec since it has the TPII-480 and a 120mm included w/ a couple of front 80mm mounts and the side panel can be easily modded w/ 2 80mm's for extra cooling if needed.

But the Thermaltake soprano w/ the Enermax is no slouch if you want some style and a side panel window, the 2 120mm fans will be quiet and cool.

I would lean toward at least a 500w psu, good for sli and overclocking

Any of those will work just fine for your components... I'd go with the Antec, personally. Excellent PSU.

I will second the Antec TruePower II 480 or 550 watt PSU...
Excellent quality at reasonable pricing.

I would choose Antec because first of all, that PSU is great, the case looks nice and has a good airflorw .
