    Alright,
    First off, a lot of cases will support the size of the 9800 GTX, just don't by a 4x4 box ;-) . Personally I would get a 9800 GTX, and then later on, maybe buy another one. (In a 6 or 8 months) Not that it won't be able to run the games, but y'know, SLI is always hot!

    For the mobo, you said you were looking at the 750i, it's a great motherboard, altho, if at some point you would like better ram, maybe even DDR3, you will be stuck at DDR2-10066. Maybe you should put a few more bucks on the mobo!

    Like I said about the case, just look for one you like, because hundreds of cases could be linked. Look at some Antec and Coolmaster, these are both really good companies.

    Hope that helped!
