thats a nice case.... but the one i picked im pretty set on.... only because i have used it on another build..... its a nice case... even for the price.... plus i get a 20$ M.I.R

... and could you maybe describe a bit more whats not so good on the board i picked.... dont know if you noticed.. but im kind of going with a Dark Black/Red theme

Your case specs say it comes with 3 fans....I don't see any "optional" fans which can be installed. One 90mm exhaust fan is kinda light ....and 90mm is a rare size so choices will be limited.

I'd also skip the 250 GB per platter drive for a newer 500 GB per platter drive (Spinpoint f3 or Seagate 7200.12)
