Hi,

I am currently building an SLI system based on GTX 460 1 GB and i7 950.

Here is my build :

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite... (CPU and Mobo)

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... (VGA)

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... (HDD)

I am about set for the setup above, now to complete my system please let me know if i should choose :

or

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite...

or

For the Casing and PSU. I am planning to make the entire system not weighing more than 23 KG as i am going to bring these when i go overseas. (planning to put the components in my hand carry/ luggage and put the casing in its own) but it needs to be cool enough when running.

and for the RAM should i choose

or

Or you got different advise ?

I might do a light to moderate overclocking. thanks for the help guys !

RAM - IMO this would be a very good option - Cheap, very good performance, and highly overclockable

GTX 460 + OCZ 750W Fatality

Case - If you want a light weight, yet a very good airflow case, then this would be a very good option -
LIAN LI PC-A70F Black Aluminum ATX Full Tower

@Gkay : Awesome ! thats what i call thinking out of box. positive review on the VGA and i can also OC it to 800/2000 without changing voltage.

as for the Lian-Li, is this

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

worth as an alternative ?

kinda worry about the plexiglass will break through the journey on plane. but i can still manage the weight, given the fact that i will shift most of the heavy component into another luggage.

Leaning to get the Lian Li but i am waiting for a more perspective.

^ That HAF X is currently one of the best, but it is huge and heavy, whereas that Lian-Li is less than 2/3rd the weight of that case but still offers what you need...
But anyways if the weight is not much of a problem, then HAF X is a very good choice...
But for just a GTX 460 SLI, IMO you wont need that big case too including the Lian-Li...even these are good...

I decided to take http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... instead, since i loved the design.

But if i have second choice, i will take the Lianli's dragon lord. nothing but good review about that one apparently.

With this being said, thanks for your help GkAy !
