Hi guys,

I'd been thinking about buying a new gaming PC for a long time, and I came across with some problems of matching it a good PSU. Also, I need some recommendations on good Full Tower cases for it. (Caught my eyes on Thermaltake Level 10 GT... Any recommendations on it? I've really liked it!)

Anyway, this is probalbly what I'm about to buy:

CPU - Intel Core i7 3820 3.6Ghz s2011 10MB L3 Cache, Tray
Cooling for the CPU- Scythe Mugen 3 CPU Cooler
Motherboard - Gigabyte X79-UD3 s2011 Core i7, Intel X79, DDR3 2133Mhz, 4xPCI-E
Memory - Kingston 4x4GB DDR3 1600Mhz HyperX Blu Dual Channel CL9-9-9-27
GPU - x2 ‏Zotac GTX670 2GB GDDR5 DX11 2xDVI HDMI DP PCI-E( 2-Way SLI setup)
Hard Drive - Seagate 2TB Barracuda 7200RPM 64MB Sata III ST2000DM001
SSD - Crucial m4 2.5'' 128GB SSD MLC SATA III CT128M4SSD2
CD Burner - LG DVD±RW GH24NS x24 Black SATA OEM

So as I've already said, I need some recommendations on a good and qualitative PSU which will be able to wield the setup above; and recommendations on a good Full Tower case with great air flow.

Hope you can help. =]

P.S.
Sorry for grammatical errors... English is not my first language... =\

Seasonic PSUs are good to but kinda pricey compared to the rest. if this were my build i would go with a ax850 from corsair.

Level 10 GT is a great case tho kinda big for my taste. go with the one that looks the best for you.

i would also change the cpu cooler to maybe a h100 or Thermaltake Water 2.0

Go with a power supply from corsair or enermax 700w or higher (things can never go bad with corsair ;) The cases I would recomend you is: Cooler Master Storm Trooper (great case! I'm currently using it) Nzxt Phantom and the Cooler Master Cosmos II. If you really like the TT level 10 GT case buy that.
