excactly my point your case choice is ok, no need to buy an other more expensive one .....................you may not even need the extra fan, the hole are their if you need them one day . I just install an extra fan that was laying around in my customer build


Get the GPU you want , but get an ATI, Nvidia GPU tire the eyes with long usage, I have a 4650 in a build here, I see no diference when I use Photoshop on that build and the one I have my 5870.. exept the speed of course, but due to the SSD and the 920 processor

So I should be fine with, say, a 500W PSU? Cuz then Geokilla's suggestion is quite good: $113.99 for case and PSU. Since I am saving here, I should definitely be able to go for the RAM he suggested too. You guys are dang good...

Yes, you'd be absolutely fine with the case and PSU he suggested.
