I'm not sure if that case can handle the V8 properly.
Anyway, what's the budget we're looking at? The resolution of the monitor you are looking to use? And the general uses for the computer?

My budget is 2,200  and I don't have a moniter yet but I think I am going with 1900x1200. My main purpose is gaming. Does the case really matter for the pc?

Oh ya, case matters for space, air circulation, ease of upgrading, placement of parts. Lots of reasons. Generally why the HAF 932 is recommended so much despite it's odd aesthetics. Does that 2200 include the monitor or just the tower?

Just the tower.
Will 100 mbps be enough for some no lag online gaming?
