I know right! I have told him to change his case but he is in love with his Thermaltake he bought like 9 years ago. I have no idea why, he will not part with the thing but to each his own and you can't argue with crazy, and that's crazy.
I plan on using a 9600 (since I have one laying around) myself for Phsyx when I get a 1500w, but that's going to happen after the monitors and stand. This is also dependent on other devs picking up Phsyx and using it more in their games, no point in spending the money on more hardware and power if the games won't support it down the line. I did tell him that btw about only using one side of the 295 for the Phsyx so it is a huge waist of energy to have that in there he should just go buy a 240/250 or something, but again I don't pay the elec bill.
There are only 2 other upgrades I am going to do and that is going with a PCIE soundcard (haven't decided which one yet) and going to 12gb of ram Corsair GT. There is a 3rd I am considering and that's going with the 6 core i7.
