Your right,it does not have dust filters that I am aware of. Go with the Antec 1200 if you like it better. They are both nice cases.
So you already have a hard drive,os and dvd drive?
I have the Noctua NH-U12P SE1366 cooler on my Core i7 rig. Its a nice cooler I am happy with it. Its quiet too.

RAM has nothing to do with overclocking, it's the RAM speed. Get RAM that's rated for at least DDR800 at 4-4-4-12 timings.

As for how to overclock: AnandTech - HOWTO: Overclock C2Q (Quads) and C2D (Duals) - A Guide v1.7

Just to let you know, the 4870X2 is basically 2 4870s that's already crossfired, so some games that don't use crossfire may result in the same or reduced performance as running just one 4870. If you do get ATI, get XFX. However, with the NVIDIA price drops in the USA, it's only a matter of time before it happens to us Canadians as well.

And even if your gaming sentence sums it up, at least give us a budget and what not...Some gamers may run their comp at stock while others who just run comps for everyday use may overclock the hell out of it....like ya, you get my idea....right?

Anyways, don't forget to price match and have fun building!

Like others have said need to know what its for and if your overclocking, because if your going with that setup and wont have more then one card or overclocking 1000W is way more then you need.

He is buying an i7 system, so DDR800 isn't going to work. And overclocking i7 is quite a bit different than C2D/C2Q

If your house is dusty and you smoke get 1200 if not get HAF. For me a couple extra times cleaning the inside is worth it. Like I said HAF is a great case.
