Best P35 mobo out there.

Antec Nine Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Retail

My favorite case above $100. Also it doesn't hurt that it has an impressive airflow system.

Top air cooling solution.

Looks like a futuristic kneepad on the front.

For your setup, if you wanted too, you could replace this PSU and save about $100 after MIR. $100 shipped - $45 MIR = $55 shipped!!!

The rest of it looks good. If the case has what you like and it looks good to you, go for it. Everyone has tastes/dislikes on cases, so go with what you like. Also if you wanted to save a little, go with the mobo Emp quoted (DS3R). No need for CPU cooler, if your doing lite OC, but that again is your option that you might want. Than with the PSU/mobo/CPU cooler savings you could get a 8800GTX and rock more with that setup. Just my opinion though. I like to get the most expensive GPU that I can afford and upgrade/OC the other parts later. I'm sure there are others that have this same feeling.

Just my 2cp's

I'd love to comment, but as Newegg won't ship to AUS I refuse to look at their website.

ok here we go lol
emp that motherboard won't run two video cards and that's something that i plan to add on later ;-) and the case you said is the first one i picked out and may go back too, the cpu cooler tho is a draw back and that's why i went with the smaller one. someone was running the same outfit that i plan too and used that cpu cooler and they had to remove two side fans to get it in the case. and maddog and madrox you're right and i'm going back to the other case i first picked out lol. and lunyone that psu is bad with asus. they seem to be fryin the motherboards. which i'd hate to take a chance with a new build. plus would 550 watts handle all the fans and two video cards? that's why i went with the 650watts plan on gettin another gts8800 later down the road. now guys don't get me wrong i'm not complaining about your help i thank you for it ;-) but maybe i should have said that i was going to run two video cards and stuff. but one thing for sure you guys have changed my mind about that case lol. i have two others that i like one is the 900 mention above and the other is http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
looks a bit better don't it guys lol. that one don't look to much like a knee pad.

the eVGA 680i runs 2 video cards on x16/x16, The ASUS crapper extreme is one of ASUS most overpriced POS along with the Socket F Asus mobo and the Crosshair. The saddest part is that the ASUS crapper extreme only has a fancy name for a 680i chipset mobo.

This is a mobo made for SLI, most likely the best out there for that matter.
