    The Lian-Li PC-P80 case is great for air-cooling and it's fulltower - MASSIVE!

    Plenty of room for even the biggest water-cool's!

    The Corsair is a top watercooling case; it comes ready for three radiators at top of the case and all possible holes needed. The price is in the killing zone.

    Why do you need 3 gts275's xtremeoverclocked? Believe C++ coding doesn't even need 1. Unless you are gaming @ 1080p, you would not need over 1 either. Why not save your parents some money for the economic slowdown so they can pay for 4 years of tech school :thumb:? Money is hard to come by nowadays.

    Check out petratechshop's preconfigured kits, they're pretty good and not too expensive.
    It is of my opinion that water cooling is not worth it unless you will be customizing your own kit, which usually costs in excess of 200, unless you buy used.

    Why not go for air-cooling for your first build. Air cooling nowadays perform really well, and they look sweet too, check out the air cooling section at xtremesystems.

    Case: I love Lian Li's, to me, they are the perfect mix of elegance, performance, and quality. - And their cheaper than Silverstones.

    BUT, you can't go wrong the the HAF. Why not take a look at the Silverstone TJ09?

    I think we are all concentrating on components instead of looking on the whole build.

    The monitor defines the GPU; a 30" monitor with huge resolution is the only one problematic from the current GPU offer if you play on all maxed.

    A nice HP lp2475w sells for around 430 pound sterlings. (1920x) and it does need three 275Nvidias.

    If you throw everything inside you computer now, then you'll have a boring machine. I think it is a lot more interesting to build a flexible one and then add water cooling and SSD as other components based on your actual observations.

    Recon a HAF with a 240 rad would be good.

    1. The Armorsuit is pretty awesome, plus it's a Lian-Li.

    2. The HAF932 is a great aircooling case but dust is an issue like you wouldn't believe. It's also pretty well sorted for WC, IMO (or I wouldn't be WC'ing in it!)

    3. Why bother SLI'ing and then WC'ing 3 cards when you can do 1 or 2 (GTX285/295 or 4870x2)?

    So, 2x BFG GTX295 for $1050 ($525 each)
    3x BFG GTX285 for $1065 ($355 each)

    and 2x BFG H20 GTX295 for $1520 ($760 each)
    3x BFG H20 GTX285 for $1590 ($530 each)

    I somehow don't see how your point of GTX295s being $$$ should therefore be a factor.
    Furthermore I'm not quite sure as to when you'd actually notice a discernable difference between 2xGTX295s and 3xGTX285s in everyday use - and even then would a theoretical Texture Fill Rate of 184.4 billion/sec from the 2xGTX295s be superior to the 3xGTX285s' 155.4 billion/sec ?
    Of course the above assumption relies on perfect SLi drivers and good luck with that one. :hehe:

    'Best for <x>' is completely open to reader preferences and interpretation. However, I think it's safe to say that the HAF 932 will not be utilised to its full potential if you're water-cooling.

    I will however mention the Thermaltake SwordM LCS for the simple reason that it's already designed and set up (to a certain extent) for the things you want to do.
