Hi guys ordering my new system from newegg, its an i7 920, Asus rampage extreme ii, 12GB corsair xms ram, corsair HX 1000w psu, 2 velocitiraptors @ 150gb, and two gtx 285s that i want to run in SLI. Not into the gaming cases with all the lights, prefer classy quiet cases, will the p182 fit two 285s in sli?

Man look at the Cooler Master HAF 932 case...its awesome. Also, 12GB of RAM may not be that great for your system...you don't need more than 6GB's man...8GB's max to be honest is pushing it. But if that is what you prefer...

That machine will scream when you are done with it...so don't expect it to be too quiet...unless you go liquid cool.

wow, thanks for all the replies, kill@dor, i know 12GB is extreme, but i'm tryin to buy the best system i can at my budget to try to keep this rig running as long as possible, so r u uys saying an sli setup in a 182 would overheat?

12GB's will probably reduce performance...and will use more power man. I can bet you it will... Your system will utilize less than 2GBs with less power...you will never touch 4GBs, i can almost guarantee you that. 6GBs will push your system to the limit...and in some times will bottleneck the PC causing it to pause/stick once in a while. You'll see what i'm talking about...but i think 6GBs is perfect. You can still get 12GB if that is what you really want...its just a suggestion ^_^
