What's the sizing of it like? It looks pretty big, and I'm probably not going to be doing any serious OCing, so I'm not going to need a water cooler in there. Also, thanks everyone for the help! ^_^

It's probably one of the biggest full size chassis.

It is as my Evilsplashy friend mentioned. Its not about OCin or water cooling. With a big case its easier to work with things compared to a cramped case.

The new NZXT cases 810 and 820 are simply amazing no matter what and how you use them.

If you don't want a giant case, but want a "big" case, check out the 600T or 650D by Corsair.

I prefer white cases, I'm thinking about the Switch, I love the looks, but I'm not sure about the size. It's either the Switch, 600T, or the Shinobi. Can anyone else recommend any nice white cases?

Here's the build so far, I found a website where the prices are so cheap! wheee.gif
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


The total comes to 875, so I've got over 130 to spend on a case/other things. Any suggestions? Is it worth getting the SSD? smile.gif Thinking about swapping it to a Sapphire 7950 boost, seeing as that voltage is locked..

SSD - YES (you will not regret it), Win 7 boot time on vertex 4 - around 15 seconds.

But with that said, prices are coming down so you might wanna wait a bit more. You will not regret a SSD.

Looks like you have a great build so far.

Case wise there are TONs of options, just get something YOU LIKE.

DEFINITELY get an SSD.

Also, get a different PSU. Seasonic x650 or Corsair TX series. Never cheap out on a PSU. Everything else looks good.

It's a Super Flower, one of the best on the market?

I'm also wondering wether to get the Extreme4, the Gigabyte GA-Z77X or the ASUS P8Z77-V LX. I'm gonna' get some Artic Silver 5 with this.

I'd get MX-4 or some other modern thermal compound, there's really no advantage to Arctic Silver. Or just use what comes with the cooler you get - they're all within a couple of degrees anyway.
