check out the coolermaster wave case, also that board has sli, how about two 256 cards instead of the the one 512? that just seems like over kill, unless he really wants it. 256 seems to be a sweetspot for most gamers right now.

I need more solid info about the video cards like benchmarks... which video card? 7800GTX's are rediculously expensive to buy two of... maybe two 7800GT's would be around the price of one of those 7900GTX's.. I guess 2 GPU's is always better than one..

i would say two 7800gt 256 if it fits into the price range, you can save money on the case by going with something a little less but still have good looks/performance. and the same with HD go for the oem or bulk drives vs retail you can save some money there and put it into something else
