I want to build an HTPC gaming system fit for a living room, not some awful looking tower(not one for bells and whistles anyway). I need help picking a case and CPU fan. Also any suggestions for anything else below would be cool too. Total budget I have is about 1400 but I want to keep it below 900 so I can buy some extra raid storage for my movie collection. I have no plans to over clock anything. I don't want to crossfire/sli either cause I play on a TV and micro-studdering is highly visible on a tv. I did read that the 7970 is fast enough to not cause studdering though but I don't want to find out they were wrong about that.
Parts I have picked
Gigabyte ghz edition 7970 GV-R797TO-3GD
8gb of gskill sniper 1866 F3-14900CL9D-8GBSR
Rosewill 750w Hive modular PSU
The case I am looking at currently is the Grandia gd08 but that thing is really big.
Any suggestions would be great. I have not picked the cooler yet.
