  1. What processor you have ? To know what mobo you need.
    Case COOLER MASTER HAF 912 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119233 in this case you can fit the biggest GPU on the market because the HDD cage from the middle can be removed.
  2. Hi There, i plane to put a i5 or i7 cpu but not want to buy the most expensive one and the case can be cheap and cheerful. i need to make sure the motherboard has all the connectors that the PSU has.

    thanks
  3. If you need a motherboard for lga 1155, I recommend one like this:

    It supports crossfire/sli in x16 and x8

    If you need a good case, I would go with the one sosofm suggested.
