Doesn't look to me like your missing any hardware out. Should be a fairly good improvement over your current sig rig.

AS for the case; I'd recommend a HAF 932 or CM Storm Scout. Good luck with the build

Is the $250 your budget for the case?If so I would have to agree with Daney the Storm Scout is a great case imo,and I would take a look at the HAF 922.

I was going to say the case I got, but it is more there. How about this?

It is only 29.99 on TigerDirect

I already bought the graphics and ram. I just purchased the case too. Thanks.

Taking a 2nd look, you want a better PSU.

Actually, I'm going to PM you.
