    I would focus down a better psu and a case personally...

    Maybe even an Antec with a new 500 watt, same price as the Nexus, and a larger case with more room.

    I'd stay away from that Nexus Caterpillar, how ever cheap it may seems. It's so flawed as it has no fan on top. Hot air is going to get trapped on top and heat GPU even more and the sound dampening material transforms sound to even more heat.

    However, if you are willing to mod a hole for a fan on top of the PCI slots to the roof, then it will work. Easiest way to do it would be to remove top PCI covers and put a fan there (that is if you don't have any PCI cards).
