What do you think of this XFX http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=17-207-022&SortField=0&SummaryType=0&Pagesize=10&PurchaseMark=&SelectedRating=-1&VideoOnlyMark=False&VendorMark=&IsFeedbackTab=true&Page=2#scrollFullInfo

It is rated Tier 1 on Eggxpert and has decent reviews. A lot cheaper. Will it run SLI in the future?

Yup

If you're looking to save, skimp on the case, use that money towards your video card. My case sits in a closet. I look at the screen, not the box my computer sits in.

Yes but you also want the box to cool well at the same time. I say buy a case you like, as long as it fits the CPU cooler and has at least 3 fans (minimum 1 up front, 1 in the back, minimum 1 up top). Also you can't really skimp on the case with a large air cooler like the Phanteks or the Noctua.
