well about the space problem. The Geforce 9800 GTX OC which i just bought is a MASSIVE card and does require a lot of space. A mid-tower probably won't be big enough, you'll need to go with a full size tower. So when you're buying your case, make sure you're getting a full-tower. Otherwise everything else would fit, just the video card might have some troubles squeezing in if you have a smaller case.

Firstly, you'll want the HD 4850 instead of the 9800GTX, it performs better and is superior in just about every way, it even costs less: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...d+4850&x=0&y=0
Here's a review: http://techreport.com/articles.x/14967

I would also go for the Samsung Spinpoint F1 750GB over the Seagate. The F1 is the fastest 7200RPM drive available: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822152100

well it all depends on the BB PC that you get
the one that i got had ram and a HDD and a CPU with the case mobo and PSU
so if i were you
i would get go and get all of the parts seperately
if you want a really good case
then take a good long look at the Ultra Aluminus ATX Tower
it makes installing the mobo, and an all HDDs, and optical drives too easy
and it has a clear side to show off all of the techie goodness (also known as parts)
