Yes, it would. The 9800GTX is an older, soon to be phased out GPU. Even a GTS 250 will outperform it in most cases. The 780i SLI is OK if you are considering building a dual card SLI rig, but is no more faster or overclockable than an E8500 / Intel P45 setup.

That one does have a windowed side panel.

How about this: NZXT Alpha Black

Here's a whole list of them: Newegg.ca - Windowed Computer Cases

found a good looking case, and has an LCD temp fan controller which is pretty cool

edit: after looking up youtube videos about the case, i found out that the motherboard tray canot be taken out, and which might cause some problems for a noob like me when installing a mobo

Why are you going to spend so much on a mid tower? It's not that much more difficult to mount a motherboard the regular way. It might take you a minute more at most.

Better cooling for a lower price.

I have never used a case with a removable motherboard tray. You wont have any problems mounting a motherboard in that case.

considered the antec 900, but wat caught my attention on the nzxt nemesis, is that it has a temp screen and i watched a vid on youtube and the dude said that you can hook up ur fans to it and make it a fan controller too.
