Default New gaming build

Hi everyone, recently found this site and figured it would be a good place to get some opinions on my upcoming gaming pc. This is my first build in probably 5 years so I've allocated a nice sized budget and want a power house for gaming. Feel free to drop suggestions and look out for any problems there might be (i've been out of the loop for awhile).

Some direct questions:
Any brand i should avoid for the video card (4870)? At this point, i may have to go with whatever i can get my hands on.

Looking for case suggestions, i mainly want something that isnt flimsy (as much metal as possible), not too flashy, and cools well.

Just listing newegg for convenience. $US

E8400 $189.99
Probably will pickup an AC Freezer 7 pro (31.99)as I will be doing some overclocking. - ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 Pro 92mm CPU Cooler - CPU Fans & Heatsinks

Gigabyte GA-X48-DS4 $224.99

two 4870s crossfired $619.98

G.Skill 4gb (2x2) ddr2 1000 $84.99

Corsair CMPSU-750TX 750W $129.99

Hard Drive:
Western Digital 640GB $94.99

LIAN LI PC-A71B Black $225

BenQ G2400WD 24inch $399.99

Lite-on DVD burner with Litescribe $31.99

Total: $2038.89
Assuming my math is correct and I didnt leave anything out
