MOTHERBOARD: (3-Way SLI & QX9650/9770 Support) EVGA nForce 790i SLI Mainboard FSB1333 DDR3 PCIe x16 SATA RAID w/ USB2.0, & 7.1Audio
MEMORY: Corsair XMS3 2GB (2x1GB) PC1333 DDR3 PC3 10666 Dual Channel Memory
VIDEO CARD: NVIDIA GeForce 9600 GT 1GB 16X PCI Express (EVGA Powered by NVIDIA)
HARD DRIVE: Single Hard Drive (160GB SATA-II 3.0Gb/s 8MB Cache 7200RPM HDD)

I'm so confused by all the available options on case, psu, and cpu cooling fan. Can anybody give suggestions based on my configuration? Pls choose them from

Out of the cases, I think the best choices are the CM Cosmos and Cosmos S. Sturdy cases with good cooling and plenty of room.

With the PSUs I think the only ones I would trust would be the Corsair 650TX and some of the Thermaltake Toughpowers. The Corsair would be my top choice.

I don't have much experience with the CPU coolers, so can't really say.

Thanks.
Thermaltake ToughPower 600W and Corsair 650TX and NZXT PP800, their prices are very similar on cyberpowerpc.com, which one do you recommend for my configuration? I think my system doesn't need a 800w psu right?
