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&v... - 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&v... .

Asus DRW: http://www.directcanada.com/products/?sku=10530DR5213&v... .

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.

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

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.
