Awesome, thanks for the tips everyone. Lots of great advice. As far as the case I think I am going to go with Antec. The case comes with 3 huge fans. One in front, one in back and one on the side. And just to clarify... I am not a guy who likes to play crazy games like Crisis. I am more of a strategy guy... so like Rome: Total War, Empire: Total War, Starcraft II, Diablo III, Flight Simulator X.
So many options though.
