    id shoot for maximus V formula with 2 graphics cards (can be 2 670s) with a 3570k and 16 gigs of ram, in that case. You should be able to do this pretty inexpensively and wont need to replace the system for a long time. beware your upgrade potential is extremely limited. On the bright side you can do this and be significantly under budget, and have alot of performance right on day 1.

    i bring my full tower to lans... ;P It is a bit of a pain tho, mostly because of the weight. I love the cosmos for this reason because of the grab rails..

    I have that one as well but in white Though I would recommend the newer version Phantom 820 cause of it's nice look. Otherwise if you don't like the pricetag go for the Original Phantom

    See if you like the Corsair Obsidian 650D. It has a bigger acrylic window to show off everything. Since you'll be going for a red theme, don't forget to pick up the red G skills. If you're too lazy to sleeve, you can always get the red Corsair Sleeved Modular Cable kit for for your PSU ($90) which would make your cables look pretty.
