i can't decide. i like flashey cases, like my current X-Dreamer II, and i certainly want it to be big, but i don't want it flimsy and i'd rather not have a door over the 5.25 bays.
so, these are the components to put in it:
2GB (2x 1GB) of patriot 1066 RAM
8800GT from a manufacturer i haven't picked yet. (XFX most likely)
Gigabyte GA P35 DS4 version 2
and a 750w PCP&C silencer
2x 400gb sata
2 optical drives
I hate the door of the x-pleasure, but i like the instruments and lights and the size!
I hate the huge 200mm fan and the grilled side panel and no lights, but the antec is just a great case, and really functional.
anyone got some inside news on these cases? bad/good experiences?
Fry's has a cooler master mystique rc-332 for $50 with a $50 rebate (free) tomorrow if you can get to one of their stores. It's roomy and has 2 120mm fans with the tooless design. Newegg sells it for $50 after rebate.
I have both the Antec 900 and the CM 690. Honestly the 900 looks cool, cools good, but it loud. The 690 is less expensive and imo just as good. Plus you save a lot of money buying it instead. My vote is for the 690.
Also, I have lots of dust (just look at the desk) The new case was installed 1 day ago and I also put the box in the raise it off the floor to see if less dust makes it way into the computer. Also, this case has 2 fans on the bottom of the case (psu and another) so I thought it would be a bad idea to have them sitting on carpet.
