(The case has a $10 rebate)

For the build listed above, I'm looking to shave cost off of the case while maintaining the usb 3.0 functionality on the front - does anyone have suggestions on a good quality case? I'd like the smallest case that will accommodate internals (I believe this is the ATX mid tower size)

  1. Get yourself a COOLER MASTER HAF 922 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119197

    I would get another PSU like CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX550M 550W http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139032

    The case does look pretty sweet, but I'd lose the USB 3.0 functionality on the front and add to the total cost...

    In terms of the PSU, the earthwatts seems to be pretty solid from reviews
