I know that the case plays a role in cooling (I o/c as much as I can) and all of that, so I had some questions.
I have seen those aluminum Lian-Li cases for over $150. Are these cases and the benefits of them worth that much? --OR-- Would it be better to just buy another nice steel case (like a Fong Kai)? In both cases, I would have a copper heatsink and case intake/exhaust fans. Thanks

The alu case would dissipate heat better but I don't think it is really a big issue. I would just get a somewhat inexpensive case that looks professional and has a good psu. If I had $150 for a case I would get an alu one just because they look so good.
