No seriously i suck at that kinda thing and would actually end F'ing everything up except the thing i was supposed to cut all though have been considering a custom paint job on the exterior of the case i know someone who works with painting cars nothing fancy maybe a two tone scheme
That sounds good man, make sure you make a build log in the intel build section of the forum so we can see you throughout the build and offer advice and tips, and learn from your experiences and ideas

There used to be a green nVidia Coolermaster case I would recommend, but it may be otu of production now... rep to anyone that know's a stockist so we can provide OP with another option

On topic, choose what best fits your needs Function over appearance... then MOD the appearance

Then why post in a thread asking for case advice

I'll remember to post in that section mate

Actually the HAF X Nvidia edition is the one i mentioned in this thread

Actually all 3 of the cases i'm looking at can be bought at the same website, and to be honest i think the HAF X Nvidia edition is the one appealing to me the most.

The only issue and this is just me being picky i guess is the green led light on the Front fan is very light green but i think a 230mm bitfenix fan with green led would fit although not sure have to check specs on the two fans and then the only question is how easy is it to uninstall/instal a fan there im sure i would have to cut the cables to the old fan and if im lazy i could just connect the new fan to a 3 pin from the PSU.

Thx to the guy for the info on the Silverstone. This is not meant to offend anyone but i think the silverstone cases are much too subtle for me but im sure with abit of modding they could become awesome.

2600K is much better for gaming than 2500K, becouse have hyperthreading so it have simultaneously 8 core, and in future games it can use, and if you buy 2600K you buy the cpu in market now.

No not really, they're about even in most games. Games generally don't use more than 4 cores, and most use 2. HT can actually cause a small loss in performance if those games use a logical core instead of a physical core.

In the future the i7 will probably be a slightly better gaming chip, however with Ivy already slated for release in about 8 months or so on 1155 the idea of future proofing seems kind of pointless. Software runs at a much slower pace than hardware, people who adopted the i7-920 in 2008 are probably still waiting for HT to matter in gaming.

Either one is fine, however neither will be stressed by a single 6950, you could always get the i5 then use the $100 savings to grab another 6950... The overall value/experience doing so would prove superior to a single /w i7.

If you're gaming, 2500K.
Rendering and stuff with gaming or whatever, 2600K.

But 2600K will be also good in future, , 2500k is good , a second best cpu behind 2600K, but 2600k is better now and in future also for gaming. And i definately dont replace my 2600K with ivy bridge, becouse think that in gaming it dont be a big leap, i rather buy in future another gtx580 to sli

How is it better now? Most games don't even use 4 cores, let alone get anything positive from HT.

I'd rather sell my SB chip and pick up an IB chip at the same price point. Assuming its another 4 core 4 thread chip, as I don't think I will need more than 4 cores for anything until probably Haswell.
