I am sorry ... that is a sharp LOOKING case you picked and, even tho most owners are fairly pleased with it ... IT IS VERY FLIMSY and a bit cramped ... as long as you know that ....

... Nothing glamorous, with these cases ... they just work. (cost a wee bit more).

This case comes with 3 large (quiet) fans and FREE SHIPPING !!

I might switch the ram to this:

And if you are sure that crossfire is never going to be an option, stick with what you have but I would spend the additional 10$ for it.
