Well im putting together my first build soon and im stuck on choosing a case.

my setup will be alone the lines of this
http://forumz.tomshardware.com/hardware/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&p=1583492#1583492

and i was originally going to get the Coolermaster Centurion 534 ATX Tower Case since im on a bit of a budget... but now i think i could have heat issues if i decide to over clock. i am willing to spend a bit more if it helps.

Im not to all into the fancy lights and windows. I would think that after time dust setilling on all the parts would make it look bad on the inside.

but i am open to ideas. i am also hoping to get a semi quiet case as i will have to do school work on it and what not.

thx

The older brother of the Centurion's, the Centurion 5 offers great airflow and is one of the cheaper models on the market. Perfect for what your looking for.

The model without the window is the same price, but does not offer the $10 MIR. So why not have the nice window :D 

Good luck :)

This is a great case when it comes to air cooling. Well worth the price but if you're still on a budget, I suggest you get the Centurions and mod it with 120 fan on the side panel to direct air towards the cpu/ram and graphics card.

any sugestions for a power supply that will have nice and long cables for the p180 and support a 7900gs and possibly a low end 8800

i just think the Thermaltake is a little to flashy for me

for the p180 do psu's with modular wiring have much of an advantage over non modular ones.

i am looking at these 2 right now. neither having modular. will i need to get cable extensions or should i be ok?
