Upgrading to NZXT 810 Switch Black Case

I currently have the CiT Vantage Black Mid Gaming Case:


And I want to upgrade to the NZXT Switch 810 Full Performance Case


These are all the components of my PC that I will be transferring to the new case,

RAM: 16GB (4x4GB) Corsair Vengeance Blue DDR3 PC3-12800 (1600), Unbuffered, CAS 9-9-9-24, XMP, 1.50V

Operating system: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit SP1, Operation System, Single, - OEM

Motherboard: Asus M5A97 PRO, AMD 970, S AM3+, DDR3, SATA III - 6Gb/s, RAID SATA, PCIe 2.0 (x16), ATX

Power Supply (PSU): 500W Corsair Builder Series CMPSU-500CXV2UK, 80% Eff', Uncertified, Quiet Fan, ATX v2.3, PSU

Hard Drive: 1TB Seagate ST1000DM003 Barracuda 7200.14 SATA 6Gb/s 7200rpm 64mb Cache 8ms NCQ OEM

Optical Drive: Sony AD-5280S-0B 24x DVD±R, 12xDVD±DL, DVD+RW x8/-RWx6 SATA, Black, OEM

CPU Liquid Cooling System: Corsair Cooling Hydro Series H40 High-performance CPU Cooler

Monitors: 21.5" Acer V223HQVbd Black Full HD LCD Monitor, DVI/VGA, 1920x1080 20000:1,200cd/m², 5ms
21.5" Acer S220HQL Class Widescreen LED Backlit Monitor - 1920 x 1080, 16:9, 100000000:1 Dynamic, 1000:1 Native, 60Hz, 5ms, VGA, Energy Star

I don't see what problems there would be in transferring these components to the new case, I'm just really overcautious when it comes to technology etc..
I'd appreciate it if someone would be able to tell me if they would work fine, in terms of sizes and fittings etc..

I'm thinking of upgrading my graphics card to the Nvidia GTX 660ti or the GTX670, along with the 'CX750' PSU.

Oh and I'm thinking of buying some green CCFL's for the inside of the case, just in case they would cause any problems of whatever :/

  1. The "500W Corsair Builder Series" will do quite nicely for an AMD 6100 / GTX 670 build even if you OC the snot out of it. Check benchmark total system power for OC 660ti and 670 here: http://www.anandtech.com/show/6159/the-geforce-gtx-660-ti-review/18

    p.s. your current card, 2GB Asus GT 630, is not a gaming card. Even if you do not spend $200-300 on video you can get a huge gaming improvement with something like an HD7850 for $170 or even a GTX 650 Ti for 130. If you are cash short stay in your current case and upgrade video. huge difference.
  2. So if I do buy the NZXT 810 Switch case AND upgrade my video card, but keep all my other components the same, there shouldn't be any problems? And when I say problems I don't mean in terms of like Battlefield gaming because I won't be stressing it that much. I just want to make sure everything will function the same if I were to transfer all my components into the new case, because at the moment my CPU and GPU are getting a little too hot for the tasks their handling. The NZXT 810 switch is a full tower, opposed to the mid I have currently, and has 10 x 120mm-140mm fan bays which will come in handy. Along with my H40 Liquid CPU cooler.

    And if I were to upgrade my video card to, for example, the nvidia 660ti or 670, would I NEED to upgrade my psu to a 650-750W? Or would it perform to near its best with 500W?
