Ok...I got tired of waiting, and decided to just place my order after a few weeks of swapping this for that in my cart. I was going to use a APEVIA X-QPACK2, but my wife rolled her eyes at the photo and asked why I would want something like that.... :lol:  :pt1cable: 

So I wanted to keep the mATX form factor as I wanted a small sized case. I got some grief over this case I picked on a previous question I asked (get a nicer case), but it's really the only thing I went 'cheap' on. I believe it will have good cooling with a 120mm in the front and back, and I might put a 80mm in the side vent.

I was thinking down the line I could plexi the side window if I got bored with the looks. As I stated previously I don't game much, and don't plan on overclocking....but this gives me the ability to do both if I wanted to.

I also ordered a copy of Crysis....just to see how well it might do on this setup.

I have both Vista Ultimate & XP for OS....I may do a Dual boot perhaps.....have not decided yet.

Just over a grand aprox shipped.

Well, it looks like case & monitor come from NJ, and everything else come from CA. I am guessing this is UPS 3 Day select they use for shipping? I have not gotten any kind of tracking numbers yet.....

Rosewill does not think the 8800GT will fit. That sounds like a challenge to me :lol: 

I'm sure I can notch that drive cage nicely....I only have 1 optical & 1 SATA drive to put in here.





Dear Valued Customer,

Thank you for writing back to us.

After confirming with our co-workers, we show that you are able to pop out the I/O panel on the rear if your motherboard is a standard ATX MB. However, we are afraid that this case may be small for 8800GT. We humbly apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.

Thank you for your time. If you have more questions or concerns, please no hesitate to contact us.
