    The 800D is a perfect case though, and imo the only one I would buy for over $150. If not that, then Ill probably just use an NZXT case.

    *cough* Me too. 800D is great. It's big, has great airflow, and it will fit EVERYTHING.

    The 800D is much bigger, with much better airflow (from what ive seen) and is probably 100x better quality wise. Not to mention the amazing cable management, which is why I first fell in love with it. Sometimes you actually have to pay for quality, and the 800D has that quality.

    In this case you really get what you pay for. You will definitely change your mind if you ever built a computer with one. If you happen to know someone who can do metal work, its also pretty easy to make some sick ass case mods.

    Well, the fact that I haven't upgraded my computer in 10 years kind of says something about a computer being outdated in a year. Just because it's a year old doesn't mean it's obsolete.

    @Roger Smith, 17-2600k is the MODEL of the CPU... not the cost.

    @Minivan Man Your sentence doesn't make sense. This isn't a "troll" or what have you.

    Like iverson said, you could easily save a lot of money on that system. Why do you want dual 6950s? Why do you want a sound card? Why do you want a 1000W PSU?

    As for the case, I'd recommend the Corsair 600T. It's nothing but good reviews, has an extremely well thought out cable management system, has plenty of fan options and is designed to support water cooling, very good build quality, plenty of room (I think someone managed to fit an E-ATX mobo in it, don't hold me to it though), and is a very good looking case.

    I say troll because i think this is fake, you are trolling us for attention

    But im probably wrong, so whatever.

    Point is, you are wasting WAY too much money. You could get a decent computer (single high end gpu, six core amd cpu, get 8 gigs or so of ram, you don't need to spend so much money on this)

    1000W for psuedo-future-proofing. Sound card because my current computer used on-board (forgot which mobo since all my shit is currently in a PODS and I'm chillin' on a laptop) and when I switched over to a sound card, albeit a cheap one, the sound quality was completely different. Maybe it's different now, but I'm going with a sound card first. Dual 6950s to put into CrossFire. It should be sufficient for quite a long time and it's only a tad more expensive than NVIDIA's GTX 580 and 590 cards and performs just as well if not better. I also might consider the Obsidian 650D. It might just be me but I love the way the Obsidian series looks.

    I'd probably recommend the 2600K over the 110T if he has the money. But I agree with everything else you said.
