  1. That case is a full tower. It would be really big in my opinion. Look for a fairly big mid-tower case. Something like the Corsair 500R.

    http://www.directcanada.com/products/?sku=30170DR2160&vpn=MKNSSDCR120GB&manufacture=Mushkin%20Enhanced - Mushkin Chronos SSD. 120 Gb for $99. Doesn't get any better than that. Also, it is a good and reliable model.

    1 Tb Western Digital Caviar Blue: http://www.directcanada.com/products/?sku=25350DR5426&vpn=WD10EALX&manufacture=Western%20Digital%20WD .

    Asus DRW: http://www.directcanada.com/products/?sku=10530DR5213&vpn=DRW-24B1ST%20Bulk&manufacture=ASUS .

    Also, try looking at these websites and see if the parts are cheaper: directcanada.com, bestdirect.ca and NCIX.com.

    Everything will work together. Can't comment on your MoBo choice as I've never tried them. Some say they're cheap but solid. Some say they're just cheap.

    thanks for the help but if i added a second gpu and a sound card would they fit in a mid-tower case?
  3. definitely.. i have the corsair 300R which is smaller than the 500R ans it still have enough space to add those two

    it is only a problem when you plan to go tri- or quad-sli

    thanks also what would be a good psu and maybe a different motherboard price range: 100$-200$ thanks again
  5. Since you plan to SLI in the future, I suggest a 750W PSU. I like the XFX Core Edition 750W. Corsair TX750, and PC Power and Cooling Silencer Mk II are also good.

    For a Motherboard, choose either one of the folllowing: Gigabyte z77x-ud3h, Asrock z77 Extreme 4, or Asus p8z77-v LK.
