Any thoughts on this part list?

Looks like a good list! That's a nice price for the OCZ Vector 256. I am not a fan of Sapphire. I recommend Asus, Gigabyte, or MSI instead. I've used the Xonar DGX in 2 builds this year and it's a good choice for gaming, especially with headphones.

Here are two gigabyte options. Only thing that sucks is it only has one DVI so I would have to get an adapter to convert to mini display port.

Joining the club. I just finished upgrading some parts into this case last week and wanted to give you guys my feedback of what I've felt about it so far.

For $100 bucks, this case does a fairly good job. I came from a Lian-Li mid tower case which I purchased from PC-mods in Florida back in 2001.

There is quite a difference between this case and the Lian-Li case.

PRO
quieter (fans don't resonate through case)
a lot of space for such a compact size
the design was made for case modding

CON
heavier (steel vs aluminum)
front panels (5.25 & 3.25) already bent from manufacture
case scratches really easy
mobo tray doesn't slide out (requires 3 screws)

Overall I would say this case is a good buy and was definitely fun to work with. I'll have some pictures up after I sleeve my PSU and finish the WC loop. (which can take a good while haha)

Well I had a quick look and the Asus 7970 cards are triple slot wide units. Not very practical. The MSI 7970 Lightning model has dual DVI connectors, but is sold out on Newegg and very pricey ($479). Those Gigabyte cards have 3 fans so they're quite long and only have one DVI connector. Hmm, maybe the Sapphire isn't so bad afterall! Sorry for the run around.

I don't understand that either. It's especially a pita if one has a H80.

I actually saw myself using the removable tray a lot. When I needed to run the WC loop to make sure there are no leaks or clean everything inside the case including changing tubing. (And when there was a leak, everything came out easy peasy)

"Upgraded" my computer to this case lately. From a x6 1055T with Fractal Arc Midi to this + a 3770k. I really love this case. Very small, but fits everything you want. Can even put in another 7970 later!
