Hi Guys,

After finalizing my new rig's motherboard to be the Asus P8P67 Deluxe with Intel core i7-2600k and GPU to be Nvidia Geforce GTX 580, can you people tell me do I need a full tower case or a mid tower case to have all the internals fitted. Also , in future, I may also buy another GTX 580 for 2-way SLI so please assist me in choosing the CPU Cabinet.

Also please rate my new rig.........
System Type ---- GAMING

Intel core i7-2600k
ASUS P8P67 Deluxe motherboard
Nvidia Geforce GTX 580
A CPU Case that you guys will advice me to get......
Corsair 8GB DDR3 RAM
Logitech G500 or Coolermaster sentinel Gaming mouse { Yet to be choosen }
Logitech G15 or G19 Gaming Keyboard {Yet to be choosen }
1TB HDD, had one 1TB earlier, thus equals to 2TB.

I would use a wide mid-tower, like the CoolerMaster 690 to accomodate the large GPU and an aftermarket CPU cooler, like the CoolerMaster Hyper 212+. The 690 comes in 2 flavors: the original and the Advanced. I have the original, but would buy the Advanced if building a new system today.
