The Cooler Master Scout would work. Are you currently trying for a Gaming PC or replacing old components?

If your going towards a gaming PC I'd recommend a Full Tower Case which is what the Cooler Master HAF-X is. If you'd rather not spend that much on a case Cooler Master also has other Cases in their HAF product line that are just as great.

I have some questions I want Coolermaster Elite 430 but only if AMD 6990 fits in it does it fit and what kind of AMD 6990 should I get or is some difference and how much power supply do I use for that and if I have 2x amd 6990 and can I mix brand like Gigabyte amd 6990 and powercolor amd 6990 or can't I have it mixed but what brand is the best ?

you can swap brands as long as there the same basic make. if you buy 1 with higher clocks then more often than not you will have to use the lower clock settings...
as for the 430 case its gonna be a tight fit and you may have to sacrifice a hdd bay or 2.
for a single card setup your looking at 430+ so add a second your looking at a bare minimum of a 800w psu. so add 200w for an overhead and you have a 1Kw psu for cooler quieter running.

honestly though running 2 of them cards is overkill, there isnt a cpu out that wouldnt bottleneck them even with a major oc.

over all i dont thing that the elite 430 will offer enough air flow to keep your system anywhere near as cool as you would like... come to think of it there isnt many cases that would offer good enough air flow to cool both them cards and the cpu.

2x6990? You have too much cash burning your pocket. If you want to go for a Crossfire setup, 2 6970's or even 6950's are better value for money.
