Ohh btw I have two evga 550ti's 2gb for sli but planing to upgrade later this fall for one big card ..

The 500R is definitely good. This all looks good, actually. If you haven't bought the 550 Ti's, don't do it. Just grab a big card now or soon. You don't need to buy thermal paste; every cooler will come with it. Get a Hyper 212 EVO.

Sounds good. Free hardware gets a free pass.

If you can go up to about $150, you can chose between a HAF 932 Advanced, the Thor V2 and the Storm Trooper. All three have had good reviews, though i personally like the Storm Trooper due to the built in fan controller and the hard drive cage.

yea my initial case was the thor black case or the half 932 and i did look at the trooper but i think it has no usb 3 ,,,also looked that at the overseer but the rebate and low shipping changed from this morning ..now cost 19 to ship ..should have grabbed it in the morning i think ..but the corsair also looks cool ..jsut not sure if that holds 2 cards in sli and still get good air flow ..

i was thinking the same before, when it was $190, but now that it is at $140 its a steal. the case performs slightly worse then the HAF X, but only by about 3 degrees-ish, which isnt that bad actually, considering the price. this is, IMO, one of the best full tower cases on the market right now.

go for gtx580 or 680 whichever you can get your hands on, it's better than 2 550ti in sli (only because you can overclock it and you can add one in the next few months or so)

he said that he already has them, and that he will upgrade to a newer, more powerful single card.

I'm pretty picky about my computer parts and i hate paying a lot of cash for something that isnt very important, like a case, but I, and other people, were willing to pay $190+tax for this case. That says something.
