Hi, I'm not experienced in building PC-.s I'd really appreciate help to find good case and PSU for my new system.
The parameters are the following

Processor: Intel QX6700
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-965p-DS3 or Gigabyte GA-N680SLI-DQ6
Memory: 2* 2GB GK Skill DDR 800
Hard Drive: 2 150GB WD Raptor in Raid 0
1 WD Caviar 320GB
Graphics card: EVGA 8800 GeForce 8800 GTX
Optical Drives: 1 DVD & 1 DVDRW

I might add 1 more hard drive and and 4 GB more memory in the future.

I'm looking for quiet/silent case and PSU.

Thanks in advance for your help...

If you are running a 32bit OS, there is no point loading more then 4GB of RAM as the OS cannot address it -you need 64 bit for this

I was considering the Antec P180B case but I'm not sure wheather the 8800 GTX fits into that one.

Really appreciate your help.

as long as you remove the top hard drive cage it should fit just fine.

i personally prefer the TJ07 with the optional side window. as for the power supply, use something like this or this if you're looking for something modular. both power supplies have quad 12V rails with 18A each.
