I'm not really up to go for a Xfx config.
Graphic card: XFX 5850 308$ (XFX version)

CPU: i5 750 http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115215&cm_re=i5_750-_-19-115-215-_-Product

Mother board: ASUS P7P55D-E "Normal" or PRO
PRO model or normal? I don't really want to Xfire...
I'll overclock the i5 to 3.2Ghz w/ turbo (or the max I can go with turbo) - if you have any suggestion, keep that in consideration!

Any cheaper option?

Any +1 for that cooler?

Case: Since I’m no more going for a C/F build, I gues it’s a good idea to change of case. I have to admit I have zero knowledge about this.

Suggestion: Antec 1200 w/ CP-850

Thank you JackNaylorPE for your rapid answer, will take your suggestions in consideration, but need to know if really it worths to get the PRO model of the mobo (stability, overclockability?).

Rather than the HAF 922 w/ the Antec 750 watter, I'd suggest the Antec 1200 w/ the CP-850. Better cooling and better PSU than any of the others. The HAF 922 is somewhat smaller and would make a good match with any of the following. Here's some choices with jonnyguru.com performance ratings in ( ) w/ newegg prices

Corsair TX-750 (8.5) $109
Corsair TX-850 (9.5) $109
Corsair HX-850 (10.0) $160
Corsair HX-620 (9.5) $129

Antec Earthwatts 650 (9.0) $89
Antec TP-750 (9.5) $124
Antec SG-850 (10.0) $269 (ouch was $209 in October)
Antec CP-850 (10.0) $139 (ouch was $109 yesterday .... look elsewhere .....mwave has for $118)
Antec SG-650 (10.0) NLA


My old router died, I need a new one.

If you have any other cheaper router suggestion feel free to post, but I need VPN Virtual Private Network
