Hey

Will these parts fit in BitFenix Outlaw nicely?
I5 3570k
Asrock Z75 Pro3
SeaSonic S12II series 520W 85+ (Bronze)
SAPPHIRE RADEON HD7850 2GB GDDR5 (planning to upgrade this at some point in not too distant future so would SLI/Crossfire fit next to all stuff nicely?)
A-DATA Premier 4GB DDR3 U-DIMM 1600 (two of those)

H70 (or similar) for CPU cooling.

And would it make sense for airflow to but exhaust fan (with H70 rad) at back and one on top of the case (i've heard that fan's might get in the way of SLI/Crossfire, anyone has any experience?) and two fans in front for air supply,

Or should I go with BitFenixes larger (and more classical) shinobi? or is there anything else in the same budget that also looks decent?

More about : fit make sense

Yeah its ok, but since you intent to sli/crossfire, get at least 650W+ to be safe. get a z77 chipset mobo and to my experience corsair ram. And if you want better future safe, get a bigger case but that will do fine.
I usually go with intake air from front and bottom and exhaust air out behind and top.

Why 77 instead of 75? as much as I could find the only difference was 77 main more PCI opportunities and SRT (what I can live without).

What would be some bigger good cases?
I've considered Outlaw and Shinobi (like mentioned above already, I like Outlaw because of the inverted MB, it seems funky), Thermaltake commander MID tower (which is less appealing visually but seems like a cooler case?) and finally HAF- 912 Combat (like Commader, less appealing, but is it cooler?)

I was not allowed to edit my message so little extra/update

If someone could explain to me why should I go for z77 instead of z75 I looked at these MB, which one is better(price is not that much higher than on z75 so I might go because or the SRT op in future.)

1) http://www.msi.com/product/mb/Z77A-G41.html
2) http://www.msi.com/product/mb/Z77A-G43.html (only difference I noticed is that G43 supports higher mHz rams and more audio ports @rear)
3) http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=...
I'm afraid the Asrock PRO4 Z77 ATX board is a little over my price range (100+€ where I live) while the MSI G43 and GB GA-Z77P-D3 have the same price tag on them ( 82.5€ which is can stretch my budget to )
