Decided to go with a full tower case. With crossfire and water cooling planned figured I'll need the space.
I'm eventually going to get another radeon 5870 and have a crossfire setup. Also, down the road I'll get another WD hard drive and set that up with a raid configuration.
I'm also going to be overclocking and want the best quiet cooling, which is why I'm leaning towards investing in water cooling. However, I never tried to do anything like that before so I'm not sure if its worth the trouble.
What do you guys think at this setup so far? Are there parts where I can save a little $$$ on without sacrificing too much performance? Any input would be great. Thanks!
