These ones http://www.ms-tech.de/eng/index.php/product/lists/key/c...

What will be put in them?

CPU: Intel Core i7-3570K
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO
Motherboard: ASRock Z77 Extreme 4 ATX LGA1155 Motherboard
or: GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-D3H ATX LGA1155 Motherboard
Memory: Corsair Vengeance Low Profile 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory
Storage: Seagate 1TB 7200 rpm 64MB Barracude
Storage: OCZ Agility 3 120GB 2.5" Solid State Disk (Will need an extra 2.5" to 3.5" bracket)
Video Card: MSI TwinFrozr GeForce GTX 660 Ti 2GB Video Card (Will put a 2nd one (in SLI) in a year or so)
Sound Card: E-Mu 1212M PCIe Digital Audio System
I think these cards need 1 PCIe x1 slot + and extra (whatever) slot, but i'm not entirely sure.

Case: ?
Power Supply: Corsair - Enthusiast TX750 V2
Optical Drive: ASUS DVD-RW 24B5ST

If you have any remarks please let me know.

I do prefer cases made in Germany, since I live in Belgium (next to Germany). So I can get those cheaper than others.
Like MS-TECH or Sharkoon.

Thanks!

They look ok but you'd be best finding some recent independent reviews...

Do either of your motherboards have an IDE socket?
Can't easily check from the phone, but your soundcard things need one, and one Pci slot for each of the two cards

Are you sure? I thought the IDE cable was for connecting those 2 audio cards.

Ah, you may be right, the manual should give setup instructions, http://support.creative.com/manuals/
I didn't notice the IDE socket on both cards,
I do like those cases though, nice mean looks :)
