thanks for your reply :)

i am thinking of 9600 gts only as each takes max of 150 watts

wont a full tower be too much for three 9600gt's

please also advise if a 190mm power supply like UCP 900W will fit into HAF922 or not?

Really??? 150 watts?? My GTS 250 takes no more than 144 watts and it is one of the least efficient models

and a GTS 250 is nothing but a relabelled 9800GTX+

there is no way a 9600gts eats 150 watts
 


PSU's are more or less the same size. If its the Cooler Master UCP 900W PSU, then your PSU is good enough.
Tom's says that on idle 9600GT takes about 120W.

I think HAF922 should be a good choice coz:
3x9600GT = Lot of heat + Choked Airflow.

i am confused between HAF 922 AND CM690 II Advanced

as i am located in india where we have far more air dust than compared to Europe/US

do'nt you feel that larger fans in HAF 922 will suck in and out more air and dust when compared to CM690 II

please note that i will be running my pc at full load for at least 15 hours each day,

Dust should not really be a big problem. Just clean your computer regularly. Im sure that if your computer is running 15 hrs a day you can afford 10 minutes and some compressed air

ya i do agree,

however if ever you visit India and stay for a couple of months

the dust here sort of eats into things and clings on to objects,

dust is a huge nuisance here.

and i can blow things with a vacuum cleaner, however i really am worried about throwing speeding air into all that stuff on a regular basis :(

HAHHAHA .. sry its just funny

basically it is a thing that blows air out, instead of suck it in (plz dont take that in the wrong way)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gas_duster

help at all?

basically its air pressurized... kind of like a can of deo spray.
so yes, it is kind of a vacuum cleaner in reverse

you can also use a vacuum just be more careful, and dont let the metal nozzle touch any of the components... try putting electrical tape on the nozzle... and dont suck in any cables
