Should I keep my Antec Sonata III for my new rig?

Heya, I'm buying a new computer and for it I need to buy a new PSU. I'm planning to buy the Antec Truepower 750W, will it fit in my old case?
Also, I'm going to do a bit OCing so I want to have a good air flow through the system so does the case have a good air flow? if the case isn't good/big enough could you recommend a good case for me please?

Thanks

  1. first of all list your system specs, but 750W should be fine for overclocking and a crossfire or SLI setup as well...the case isn't that perfect of high end setups and good air flow, you should consider getting one of the CM HAF series
  2. GPU: MSI GeForce GTX 570 Twin Frozr III Power Edition OC
    Mobo: Asus P8P67 Pro
    PSU: Antec High Current Gamer 750W
    CPU: Intel Core i5 2500K
    RAM: G-Skill 8GB Dual Kit Ripjaws-X, DDR3 1600MHz, CL 8-8-8-24
    Fan: CoolerMaster Hyper 212+

    Would the CM HAF 912 Plus be okay?

    yes it will be perfect, just get a 120mm side fan to ensure better air flow to the GPU

    it's old and sucks
  6. I would re-use the Sonata III case. Measure the space it has for the GPU. If you have at least 11", it is OK. You can add additional case fans to help with cooling.

    I built my latest rig (i7-950 + HD 6870) with the Sonata Proto case, because I need one less than 17" tall. It is a tight fit, but I have everything running cool.
