Case- Antec Three Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Case Fans- 3 Antec 120mm Tricolor LED Case Fan

plus I picked up a CORSAIR CMPSU-750TX 750W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply . Still looking for help with Rams and CPU

Are you buying these parts in a store? Or on an E-retailer?

And your budget? I would suggest waiting a bit and buying it all at once rather than running out and buying a part as soon as you see it

We need to know what you have already purchased so that we can find parts that are compatible and in the performance region. Also provide some sort of a basis for your budget so that we don't have the extremists in here suggesting 5970 crossfire for you.
