imho the 900 is a terrible choice for those great parts!!!
certainly not with 580's coming in at $400 or less, the 580 wins here!!!....lets not not forget Driver support which is HUGE in my books!!!

I saw this deal and im going to let her see it (hopefully she'll like it)

About the 900, she has *attachement* to it. Ive shown her better case like 600t, 800d, and etc but still a NO.

No SLI? Overkill motherboard and PSU.

This is where I think you're at.

Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 EVO RR-212E-20PK-R2 Continuous Direct Contact 120mm Sleeve CPU Cooler Compatible with latest Intel 2011/1366/1155 and AMD FM1/AM3+
Newegg.com - ASRock Z68 PRO3 GEN3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Newegg.com - CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX650 V2 650W ATX12V v2.31/ EPS12V v2.92 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC High Performance Power Supply

As for cases, HAF 912, Rosewill Challenger or Antec 300 will do the same job for less. small coolers such as the 212 Evo actually work best when used in narrow cases.
