Hey guys, I need some advice on a power supply and case for under 150-160 that will handle a HIS 6950 2gb, i7 870, 16 gb corsair ram, HP mobo, an SSD, Cd drive, and Harddrive. I want a case that I can upgrade in the future, good ventilation, and a PSU that can do the job and is reliable, and probably over 600 watts. Need help please!

The psu will need to be 550w for sure and depending on what you may throw at it in the furture maybe a 650w. It needs to be high quality. You can check on that first. Look at this site and chose the brand:

After that the left over is the case budget. Make a psu decision and then ask for help.

Those are excellent choices, but I wanted to add a couple more, just for variety:

OCZ ModXStream Pro 700W Modular PSU Awesome price right now, $90 and $60 after rebate

Corsair TX650 V2 $90 and $80 after rebate

Both nice PSUs that exceed what you need, with a bit of future proofing.

COOLER MASTER HAF 912 Awesome price of $60 and $50 after rebate

Antec 300 Illusion $70

Rosewill Challenger $55

The last 2 have more fans (1x 140mm on both and 1x 120mm on the Antec), but they're all great cases for the $$.
