    First of all, get a bigger case. The 7950 will not fit inside of that case. Second, you need dual channel memory for that motherboard, not Triple channel.

    Would an Antec nine hundred do well with 7950? If not, what case should I get? Can you recommend me a different Memory?

    I checked Newegg, the Antec 900 is $99 + $11.99 shipping. If you're going to spend that kind of money on a case get a nicer one (Actual cable management, colored inside (doesn't matter much), hard-drive slides, tool-less optical drive bays, etc).

    Like the Phantom 410 (Can fit pretty much any video card .... ever), P280 (Supports 13 inch cards), Thor V2. All of those are in the sameish price range, though pick the case you want, these are my mere suggestions.

    As for RAM, G.Skill Sniper Series 8 gb (2 x 4gb) DDR3 1600mhz should do you just fine. The sniper series because your mobo's dimm slots are black.

    Just my $0.02

    You should get a 64-bit Windows 7, 32-bit can only support 4GB of RAM.
    What games are you gonna play on it?

    i agree with this guy.
    Attempting cable management on an antec case is horrible. there isnt much space behind the motherboard to put any cables behind it and the holes for threading the wires throught havent got any rubber around it to make it look tidier.
    Its also a pretty dark case.
    When i had it, the leds froms some of the components made it look a lil brighter but on the whole its still dark and plain.

    Oh, you're right. I'll have to buy a 64-bit OS Windows 7 then. I do enjoy using Adobe After Effects . Is 16 GB good enough ram for me and my friend on MC? I don't want to lag him.

    16gb should be fine for after effects depending on what you're renering.
    And by you and your friend on minecraft not lagging do you mean if you set up you own server?

    A while back i had a server with 35 people in running on 8gbs of ram no lag at all.

    16gb is overkill in those aspects but if you're rendering high end footage in after effects it sort of makes up for it.

    You might want to upgrade to a i5-3570k. Just a suggestion.

    I don't feel like I necessarily need it. I do not plan on overclocking.
