Now i'm also thinking about changing out my Antec Three Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case for the Antec Nine Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case for the final change.

Am I overdoing the case? I figured I bought myself more room for upgrading to SLI at some point with the CPU, and Mobo. I thought that 3 120mm (potentially four) fans and the 200mm top fan.

Should keep my i5 2500k even more chill, hopefully i'll be able to overclock to 4.5 GHz (maybe more?) with no problems.

Sound good?

Thanks
Shiva

Oh, and its cheaper!

Also I would like to add that 4gbs will not cut it anymore. The best possible recommendation for a capacity would be 6gb, but they do not offer well priced 6gb kits. So I would stick with 8gb kit. Games are starting to push 3-4gb easily now.
No. 4gb is fine. Crysis 2 along with Starcraft 2 has never pushed past 3.5gb for me when they are opened together.
