Hi, can anyone recommend any decent case with good airflow. Preferably without window. Price range 100-150$.

SOLVED --> Also i chose this psu: https://pcpartpicker.com/part/seasonic-power-supply-ss660xp2 is it enough for my build or i need to get a slightly better one? I might overclock in future.

is all of the components compatible? Will be there no problem with fitting ram with this cooler?

SOLVED --> And for last, can anyone guide me how to post build like in excel sheet or whatever its called? :S

  • Your PSU is more than enough for your setup, and may handle 2 way SLI and any overclocking you may do. I'd suggest you keep it.
  • As for the case choice, I'd consider the Corsair Air 540. Split into two chambers, your components will be directly cooled, and all the unnecessary cable clutter can be easily hidden behind.

And for last, can anyone guide me how to post build like in excel sheet or whatever its called? :S

On the System Build, click on the Export/Markup on the top right hand corner of the page. A table will be ready to be copied and pasted into here. For example, if I used your parts lists and used the Export/Markup function, it would come up like this:
