My System Specs


I would be very tempted to drop the GPU down to a 670.. (the gigabyte is pretty awesome from the review and very nearly as fast as the 680)
At $100 price difference and the resolution your playing at.. it's really not worth it (unless you can find a 680 for much less than $500)

With a 1920x1080 screen the 670 will be plenty.

On the screen, are you looking to do 3d stuff? For work? for games? for video's?
If not I would defiantly consider an IPS panel for the bump in resolution over the 3d panel.

On the case. What are you looking for? silence? looks (and what kind of looks do you like) cooling, space? etc..
Worth looking around for a style you like and tell us what your looking for from the case as well as the model you like the look of..

Personally I love it: Corsair Graphite Series 600T Special Edition White Review
There are a few other case reviews here but there is a huge selection beyond.

The case is really not a big deal for me.
I just want it to have a good fan system , glass or plastic side so we can see whats inside and of course some led lights.( and to have a fancy look )

About the monitors I might go for 3x 24"inchs 1080P size monitors ( Something like this ~ XFX Triple Display LCD Eyefinity Monitor Stand Product Showcase NCIX Tech Tips - YouTube ~ )
Im not sure about the 3D because I think your eyes get tired very fast from watching the image and ive heard it can give you headaches
Thats why I rather stick to a more conventional monitor
I will use the monitor for Gaming and Video making so no need to tell you I will spend a lot of time in front of them eh :)
