I have the Solo, and really like it alot, but don't plan on upgrading to anything longer than that 4850 without some modding. My 8800 stretches across the whole span almost touching the HD rack. Still, it's a very quiet case and pretty sturdy.

For both rigs, you're not going to need the Corsair 620W, you'll be fine with the 520. I'm biased against Dominators because I've always gotten bad sticks from them, but that's just me...and I've found that when they DO work, they don't OC to match their hype. G.Skill is my suggestion, wait a bit and their 2x2GB 1066 will be back down to <$100.
