Ya 27 is too much for my desk ill probably get the 24 inch so , i was reading about the 670 its 100 cheaper then the 680 and only about 5% slower which means about 2-3 fps in games which is nothing really , any suggestions on my case or is the antec 900 v2 good enough or would yoi go with coolermaster etc ?

Personally I would go for the fractal case I posted before (good cooling and quiet) or something like the Corsair 600t white.. But thats my preference..

I'm not a fan of the Antec cases myself... I would find something around the 60 - 120 mark from the likes of coolermaster, Corsair, Fractal or Bitfenx.

I was looking at the noctua fan and since it is so big will there be enough room if i wanted too and more memory in the future or would it be blocking any of the slots ?

As long as you get low profile heatspreaders on your RAM you are fine, also thermalright silver arrow is cheaper, and performs 2C cooler then the best noctua cooler, used to own one before i went liquid cooling loved it.

The thermalright has 2C cooler temps, and the phanteks PH-TC14 has 2 C lower then the silver, just suggested the arrow because it was $72 shipped when i purchased mine, and the noctua was over $100 shipped.

660ti will be good for 1080.. If you plan on going larger then go 670 but you already said you weren't

That said I don't know what Custom ones are available..
