Hi Guys,

Have a little cashflow issue and needed assistance regarding choice of case.

This is the system I have decided on:

i7 920
Asus P6T
Gskill 6GB 1600 C9 1333 or Kingston
1TB WD SATAII 32MB
HD5850
Pioneer 218D SATA DVD Burner
Thermalright Ultra-120 extreme Rev A
850 Watt True Power
Sound Blaster X-FI Pro

The case that i want is the Antec 1200 which in Australia go for around A$250. But I need to save as much as possible. As a student any little bit of cash can come in handy. So I was wondering if I would be very limited to go for the Antec 902 Midi tower case instead? WIll I have any major problems? I guess my concern is heat and airflow. I will not be overclocking, wont need to for at least a year. I will mainly use it for application, some music editing and maybe the odd game.

I've never heard of anyone having trouble fitting a system like that into a mid-tower case. The 902 has very good airflow... you should be just fine.

Forgot to mention that i will probably crossfire with another 5850 later down the track. I guess it should still be ok.

As an owner of 3 Antec 900's, I can tell you that, with two video cards, your case will be pretty crowded.
