hmm, mkay.
I want a new case,MB,PSU and Grapic card(s) then, what would u guys recommend?

EDIT: I would realy like a BIIIIG case with very good cooling (Am not gone have watercooling)
Id also like a MB with better space then the Asus, cause i baraly have space 4 my GTX295 and Asus Xonar Essence STX soundcard without creating a bunch of heat.
Id like some faster Hard drives aswell

how those the PSU suck the Corsair 1000HX is one of there best models unless you broke it.

i just finished sleeving one not too long ago and the things gold plated everything and it was 3-4 years old and it still powers awesomely

if you want a new bad ass mobo get the gigabyte G1 assasin or the asus rampage extreme III you could always get a 990x or something but that would kill you're buget well maybe if you keep the rest of the stuff and just buy CPU MOBO and Gcard you can probly afford it

1000HX will do fine. If you have the itch to upgrade anything I would upgrade the video card and get a Solid State Drive.
