Have no idea for a case, i need something cool enough to overclock 2 ghz ed 7970s

make any improvements where you can please, all of my friends are to stupid, and or ignorant when it comes to computers so i need all the help i can get

Also i need some ideas on a mouse and keyboard

my budget is 2400-2500$ so i still have alot of room for improvements

What are you using this for? if it is just gaming, you could save yourself a lot of money.

Waste of money if only for gaming. You could shave off even $1k and it'll still be a beast.

if i changed the i7 to an i5-3570k and went with 8 gb of ram i think thats all id shave off... ima overclock this to hell so id like two GPUs i dont know what else to get rid of.

Unless you are gaming on triple monitors, you dont need to crossfire 7970's They can run everything on max setting at high resolutions.

A good case is the nzxt switch 810. It has very good airflow and design. They are relatively inexpensive.
