CPU: i5 3570k
Mobo: ASRock Z77 Extreme4
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GTX+ (planning on buying a second to SLI).
RAM: Kingston 8GB
PSU: Raidmax 700w
HDD: 500GB

I ordered everything new except for the GPU and PSU on Newegg; it should arrive tomorrow. Will all this stuff fit in my Dell Dimension 4700 case? If not, what should I buy?

I was thinking either
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... or
http://www.amazon.com/Cooler-Master-Elite-Window-RC-430...

Does anyone have advice for me? This is my first build and I'm feeling pretty worried that it won't all fit in there.

I just bought a Rosewill one (5 star rated on Newegg with 1,000+ reviews). It's set to arrive in 3 days; the rest of my stuff will arrive in 1.

Can I assemble the parts on top of the motherboard box on my desk, and use the computer with no case until the case arrives?

I HIGHLY recommend not doing that. Why risk it. It is only a couple of days wait.

Yes, it's called breadboarding and is done by most people with any experience
