That is one sexy case, should of specified that I want to get a mid tower case. I currently have an haf 932 but has been a pain to move around. Also I will be keeping the 1Tb drive from my old build so just looking to get a boot drive.

I hadn't realized that seasonic made those PSU, will look into doing that. Have always skipped modular for cost savings.

Suppose for that little money I might as well get a dvd drive. Wasn't going to get one because I never use the one in my current computer.

Your original build is pretty similar to mine. The only changes I would make woul be the memory, SSD, and GPU. You can get 8GB for under $50 and not notice any performance loss. I would also go with the Crucial SSD over the Intel for the same reason. The 7950 is a sweet GPU, but if you're looking at the higher end cards why not get the best one? NewEgg has a combo deal for the H100 and TX750 V2 which is $25 off. That is if you don't want modular cable management.

It is out of stock. Who knows when more will come, so if he is buying in the next few days, get the Radeon 7970.

didn't realize I could fit a 680 into my build, will have to adjust my budget a bit. I am going to microcenter this weekend because they have the 3570k for 189.99 as well as $50 off the extreme4. Looking to keep the H100 just so I could try a poor mans watercooling, unless those won't fit in many mid tower cases?

The H100 fits in the 600T just fine. You even have room for push/pull if you don't mind having 2 fans just inside the top mesh area. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oj2g4mjQLqQ

I love the Corsair cases, even the Graphite series.
