i'm looking to build a gaming computer, the specs i'm looking into are
CPU - i5 3570k @ 4.4GHz
Motherboard - Asus Sabertooth Z77
CPU Fan - Arctic Cooling Freezer 13
RAM - Corsair Vengeance LP DDR3 1600MHz
GPU - Asus GeForce GTX660 TI-DC2OG-2GD5
PSU - Corsair TX750
HDD - Samsung Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ

I have not yet decided on a case, but i was looking at the Inwin Fanqua however im not sure the case is large enough or good enough for cooling.

What do you think of this build? Good Value?
Im also looking into get another 660TI further down the line after buying this computer, maybe 2 months. Which leads me onto my next question, is the power enough? And should i go with the SLI?

Mmm if you are going with a Second Gtx 660 Ti Sli in the Future then you should get a Full Tower. The Thor Series of Rosswell and the Xclio WindTunnel are great and have good value. But if you want quality i have never heard a Bad Word about the Coolermaster Haf Series Full Tower, The Antec or The Azza Cases.

750w for a Gtx 660 ti sli and Overclocked I5 its Enough.

the cases are all very expensive, could i get away with a decent mid tower instead but with good cooling, such as the antec 900?
