  3. what case would you recommend that isnt too pricey? I wanted the dragon rider because of the amount of fan i can use and its fairly cheap for a full tower case. Also i was planning to get the gtx670 but because gtx 660 ti is only around 15% less then a 670 and is $100 cheaper i might stick with that.

    Also lol i wasnt trying to get any kind of theme just went with whatever was cheaper and efficent.
  4. decided to go with the cooler master haf 932 advanced. Just curious on how many fans the case will come with.
