I am also debating switching the nzxt case for the coolermaster 922 hef just because it has better reviews.

I also needed to know whether I should get the OEM system builders version of Windows 7 or the home retail edition.

^ You have selected good components for your build...
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...

OS - Save money and get the system builder's version...

HDD - Samsung F3 500GB/ 1TB or Seagate 7200.12 500GB drives...
