Here is my build:

MOTHERBOARD: ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

CPU: Intel Core i7-930 Bloomfield 2.8GHz 4 x 256KB L2 Cache 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1366 130W Quad-Core Desktop Processor
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

RAM: Mushkin Enhanced Blackline 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model 998781
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

GPU: XFX HD-587X-ZNDC Radeon HD 5870 (Cypress XT) XXX Edition 1GB 256-bit DDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card w/ Eyefinity
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

HDD: Western Digital Caviar Black WD6401AALS 640GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

DVD: LITE-ON Black 24X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 12X DVD+R DL 24X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 12X DVD-RAM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM 2MB Cache SATA 24X DVD Writer LightScribe Support

WIRELESS: ASUS PCE-N13 IEEE 802.11b/g/n PCI Express Wireless Adapter
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

So I need a case that can fit this mobo, with space for the PCI slots etc. It doesn't have to be pretty; the most important things are low cost, ease of use, and enough space to do future additions/upgrades.

Also: If I plan to do some slight overclocking and eventually add another GPU, which power supply do I need?

the 750w should be enough

what is your budget on the case? low cost means different things to different people...

Great! and under $80 would be preferable. basically as cheap as i can get away with without being flimsy or hard to work with. i dont need windows or anything.

Oh- but a couple USB and maybe a headphone jack on the front would be nice. any thoughts?
