I am gonna buy the Cooler Master HAF 922 but if I want to use 3 way sli on the ASUS P6X58D-E do I need 8 expansion slots.. the HAF 922 only has 7 if I need 8 Ill just buy the Cooler Master HAF 932 or the Corsair 600T

^ 3-Way SLI ? Which card ?
How about this case ? Has 8 Expansion slots and is pretty good and in the same league of the HAF 922...

Also if going with 3way SLI, then IMO a Full Tower would be a better option...
Here is a very good alternative for the HAF -

^ GTX 580 Tri-SLI ?? You sure of going that route ? IMO its not worth it...But if you still want to, then its your call...
As for the case, then look at the HAF X - Similar to the 932, but has far better features...

^ Not all games will take advantage of that, also scaling issues still exist in many games...2-Way is fine,...

CASE - 922 for 2-way would be fine and I would still suggest a Full Tower for Tri...

I've got 2 932's and they blow any case any config away......meaning, they are good enough for everything..... plus you have the advantage of choosing where you want to place the PSU.... on top or at the base, since a tri SLI setup might need a little more on the last PCIe slot thus, very easily changeable PSU placement helps....
It's also very roomy and has a lot of space to be able to manage the cables very well, go for the 932..... and you won't need another case for a very very long time.....
