I am building a new mini ATX rig that will use sandybridge
The following is the specs:

CPU : Core i5 2500k (OC to 4.5ghz)
Mobo : Asus ROG Maximus IV Gene-Z
RAM : 1866mhz CL9 8gb corsair vengeance
GPU : EVGA gtx 570 sc

There will be one 1tb hdd, and one optical drive.

So the question is,

I have corsair H50 ready to be installed for my oc'ed i5, but I need a case that I would be able to mount 120mm fan as well as house my long gtx 570.

Or should I buy a new non-water cooling solution, and what would you recommend?

Also, what would be the case I should get if:
1) I get H50 cooler, or
2) Heatsink Solution

And my last question is:
Are HT (Home Theater Cases) good for my GTX 570?

I was thinking about getting Antec P180 mini but I'd prefer something lighter for mobility

Most HT cases wont fit any full height full length cards as hey are for low power builds, not gamer.

But now that I think about it, some of the cube style ones, like the thermaltake lanbox, might but then you run might run into PSU issues.
