well i got kind of screwed over. I was going to get the Antec 300 case deal that came with a nice PSU for quite cheap, but i accidentally went over the due date limit and now that deal is defunct.

So, please recommand me a nice PSU and Case deal. Trying to keep the budget for the case and psu at ABOUT $100. No super hardcore gamer cases please with neon lights flashing everywhere. Just a regular one (like the antec 300) with good heat control will do fine. Same thing with the PSU, nothing flashy but good enough to handle the power in this build.

And have a look at my build do while your at it? what you think of it? any suggestions?

edit: after I posted they listed the first case as not in supply so I went back and found this.....

Buy.com has the Antec 300 for $50 free shipping. http://www.buy.com/prod/antec-three-hundre.../207906549.html . I wish I would of seen this topic sooner, Newegg had the Antec 300 for $40, free shipping, but the coupon code is no longer valid. Still, $50 isn't bad at all for a nice sturdy case like this.

You can also get the Coolermaster Centurion 5 case for $50, free shipping too. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16811119068. You'll need to add it to your cart and add the coupon code: EMCBAACAB . You'll probably have to subscribe to their newsletter for the code to work, but the code gives it free shipping.

Now for a power supply, this one is really good for the money: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16817371006 .

If you plan on doing crossfire though, you'll probably need a bigger power supply around at least 500-550Watts.

Whatever case you eventually select, for the $100 range I rather like the iStarUSA Nitro Ax S-10000B, get one that is large enough to support the length of your graphics card. Many owners of newer graphics cards, including the one you want, complain that due to the length of the card, it sometimes will not fit into the case. If you want to guard yourself against this, get a Full ATX case not a mid ATX. From what I can tell, your graphics card will extend beyond your motherboard.
