Im trying to stay away from the crucial m4's because of their terrible write speeds. Also, do you think that the galazy 560 is better than the msi 480 ti hawk? And will that psu have enough cable length to fit behind the haf 912 case and back inside comfortably?

i suggested a M4 its better then the ne you have in mind or i should say one of the best in the category at its price have a look HERE but for your 1ooo$ budget the
OCZ will serve you good
GPU the 7870 performs better then the GTX57o and the GTX48o in mostly everything have a look here
GTX570 vs 7870
i got not get the GTX480 in there as its a old card but the GTx57o usually is faster so the 7870 is faster then the GTX570 and when overclocked it performs like a 7950 or sometimes even better have a look here 787o performance (Click to show)
700
618
470

Oh, I should have mentioned, but I had already bought that case. After totaling everything with the MSI Hawk, the total had been ~$940, not including the price of the case, which was a little over, but acceptable. And I looked at the link that you posted about the Rosewill Green PSU, but I couldn't find any info regarding the actual lengths of the cables of the PSU. Could you help me find some more info? And thanks for the help so far! I really appreciate it xD

hmmm even did not get very accurate data on it bu the review say
Quote:
All cables are protected by nylon sleevings, which come from inside the power supply housing. Cables are somewhat long, measuring 20 ½” (52 cm) between the housing and the first connector on the cable, and 5 ½” (140 mm) between connectors on cables with more than one connector. All wires are 18 AWG, which is the correct gauge to be used, except the +3.3 V (orange) wires on the main motherboard connector, which are thicker (16 AWG).

The cables included are:
  • Main motherboard cable with a 20/24-pin connector (20”or 51 cm).
  • One cable with two ATX12V connectors that together form one EPS12V connector (21 ½” or 55 cm).
  • One auxiliary power cable for video cards with one six/eight-pin video card auxiliary power connector (19” or 48 cm).
  • One auxiliary power cable for video cards with one six-pin video card auxiliary power connector (19” or 48 cm).
  • Two SATA power cables with three SATA power connectors each (17” or 43 cm to the first connector, 6” or 15 cm between connectors).
  • One peripheral power cable with three standard peripheral power plugs each (17” or 43 cm to the first connector, 6” or 15 cm between connectors).
  • One peripheral power cable with three standard peripheral power plugs each and one floppy disk drive power connector (17” or 43 cm to the first connector, 6” or 15 cm between
connectors).

There are good and bad news about the wires used on Rosewill Green Series 630 W. On the main motherboard cable the wires are thicker than required (16 AWG), however on the peripheral and SATA cables the wires are thinner than required (20 AWG). The video card and ATX12V/EPS12V cables use the correct wire gauge (18 AWG).

So do you think that the wire thicknesses could pose a threat to cable management in the HAF 912 case?

the length is substantial especially the 8pin cpu power cable, the HAF 912 is less than 19" inches in height, whereas the cable lenght for this is ~ 22", long enough to cable route at the back of the motherboard totally hiding it from sight, assuming Tarun posted data are correct of course.
