Your taste in cases are probably different to mine so feel free to choose another one. But generally the HAF series from CoolerMaster provides great airflow, which is what you want unless you're into silent builds.

Wow, I started a shopping cart on newegg and pretty much found the exact same parts so I guess I did a good job picking them out myself! This isn't my first build but I thought I would find out what other people would choose for this budget. I forgot to mention that I already have a hard drive and so my total comes out to about $1130, Since I will have an extra $200 to put into this build what would you suggest upgrading?

You can either save up for another 670, get a snazzier case or buy a water cooling loop for the 3570K, since they do run at pretty high temps on load. I'd personally go for the SLI since this is a gaming build.
