First PC build

My built is leaning towards gaming.
List of games I would be playing:
StarCraft series
Diablo series
Command & Conquer series
Guild Wars 2
RollerCoaster Tycoon
I want to be able to run the games on their highest setting.
Other uses: watching blu-ray movies, surfing the net.

My questions.
1. Would the case with all this include have ample space for a cooling system?
2. Is the power supply sufficient enough or is it better to get more wattage for future add-ons?

Any general comment about components or concern about a certain component please share. I had more questions but they currently escape my mind.

  1. Your case will be fine. You will have plenty of room for all parts.

    If you plan to run 2 GPU's I would think about a PSU like one of these:

    CORSAIR HX Series HX850 850W ATX12V 2.3 / EPS12V 2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply $174

    CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX850 V2 850W ATX12V v2.31/ EPS12V v2.92 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC High Performance Power Supply $134

    SILVERSTONE Strider Gold Evolution SST-ST75F-G Evolution 750W ATX 12V v2.3 / EPS 12V 80 PLUS GOLD Certified 100% Modular, Active PFC Power Supply, with 140mm Fan Filter $144

    Just remember do not go cheap on your power supply. This is the heart of your system
  2. My main concern on getting a Radeon card is I've read Starcraft II is basically made to run better on Nvidia cards, which is the game I'll play the most.
