Put this together... What do you guys think? I'm also still confused if I need a full tower just for the sake of airflow or not. I don't plan on putting more than 2 video cards top in this thing, and even 2 vid cards is a maybe that would be down the line.

A mid tower is fine if you get a good one with nice air flow.

Don't get that cpu cooler... This is a beast cpu, the Evo won't do much for you if you want to over clock it... You want a much better air cooler like a noctua d14 or a good liquid cooler.
