I'm looking to upgrade my rig in the next 2 years but am wanting to change my case that I currently have. My current case is a Thermaltake Tsunami Dream ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E1681... ) and it's just not what I'd hoped for as far a case goes. Now I've been looking around and found what I consider my "dream" case the Antec P180 ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E1681... ). Now, as mentioned before, I'll be upgrading my current rig in the next 2 years and I'll probably need a much larger PSU and I've got my eyes fixed on the PC Power & Cooling 1kw Quad SLI PSU ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E1681... ).

My current rig:

AMD 64 X2 3800+ OC'ed to 2.2 Ghz
BFG 7900 GTX 512 mb OC'ed
ASUS A8N-SLi Deluxe
2 Gb Kingston Value RAM CAS Latency 2.5-3-3-6
Creative Labs Sound Blaster Audigy 4
Westen Digital 74 Gb Ratop ADFD
2x Western Digital 250 Gb Caviar SE
3x Thermaltake Hardcano 14 HDD coolers (getting rid of those if/when I get my Antec P180)
Thermaltake Blue Orb II CPU cooler
Zalman VF-Cu 900 Blue LED VGA cooler
Thermaltake Extreme Spirit Northbridge cooler
PC Power & Cooling 510w PSU

Future upgrade rig:

AMD 64 FX-74 or better (4x4 setup is a maybe)
2x BFG DX-10 compatible VGA's in SLI
ASUS mobo w/680a (or better) SLI chipset
4gb (or more) Corsair DDR2-800 RAM
Air cooling HSF's from ZALMAN
Same Sound Card
150gb Raptor
3x 500gb Caviar
PC Power & Cooling 1kw Quad SLI PSU

Now I know the PSU is up to the task, but can the P180 hold all this stuff?

Not buying the case any time too soon but am in the market for a better case and this is what I've setteled on.

Thanks for all the replies/help in advance!!
