Post subject:  Subtle and quiet PC case?

Hi, just joined up because i'm looking for advice on a nice new case for my rig.

Right now my set up is:

Q6600 @ 3.15ghz
Asus Commando
4gb of Corsair (I forget the model)
7900 GT
Artic cooling 7
Corsair HX520

I want to upgrade these bits:

Case: I want something subtle like a Silverstone TJ07 or an Antec P183?
Graphics card: I've more or less settled on a Radeon HD 6870 but I can't find a model made by someone with a really good/quiet gpu cooler? I'm happy to take suggestions on other cards.
HD: I want to go SSD but I find the benchmarks confusing and often different sites contradict one another, so really i'm after one 60GB drive now and i'll buy another when I have the cash later on.
Power supply: I want something quiet that can feed two 6870s if need be?

Sapphire released their Vapor-X version of the 6870 not too long ago, those are my favorite stock coolers. But if you don't mind modding then Arctic Cooling's Accelero Xtreme keeps my 6870 plenty cool with the fans locked at a silent 30%.

As for the PSU, Seasonic's fanned X-series are quiet, and don't even spin up until the temperature inside the unit rises over 25-30% of its danger threshold.

Haven't used the P183, but I do currently use the P180 along with a Seasonic 430w PSU. In my opinion, it makes no more noise turned on than it does sitting there turned off.
