But just a heads up...You wont be able to crossfire on that mobo as it has only a 1 PCIe X16 slot... As for the case, IMO this would be very good... NZXT M59 - Though even I like the HAF 922 but this case is very good for that price and has spacious interiors too and is painted all black inside... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... OS - Save money and get the system builder's version... HDD - Samsung F3 500GB/ 1TB or Seagate 7200.12 500GB drives... Can't find your answer ? Ask !
