Also considered the X3 720, but that would add fan cost.

Need suggestions mostly on the case. Mobo will give me USB3.0 and crossfire potential. Could crossfire, but would run out of space/cooling issues?

Will want to overclock.

I'm hoping to keep it as close to $750 as possible.... but I would be up for anything that would increase its gaming potential/upgradeability that is a good deal.
