If your going to upgrade your vidcard to say, a 8800, your gonna need a full tower case I believe. Otherwise all looks good.

 I like the Thermaltake Armor personally, but anything by Cooler Master is great, as well as Antec.  The P182 in particular.

I vote Antec P182 aswell. One of the best cases on the market.
