I liked this case from an appearance stand point and also liked the amount of cooling options. However, this will be the first case i'm buying and i would appreciate some input from the community about it and if you have anything better, I'd look into those too.

By gaming big time do you mean something real extreme?
Like, Crossfire X 5970's and a heavily overclocked cpu?

Would it be fine for say, an AMD Phenom II x6 1090T BE @ 4GHz and 4870's crossfired? Assuming i have proper heatsinks (which i do/will)

I actually got to take a close look at the NZXT Lexa at a local Fry's Electronics store. The door on the front bezel restricts airflow.

Really? But it's not covering the intake...

The bottom of the door covers a portion of the fan. If you take a look at the photo of the front with the door open you can see it. You'd have to run it with the door open.

Hmm I think it looks like a small portion of the opening. Do you have an alternative for the same budget in mind by any chance?

I found myself looking at cases today, I also like black inside, bottom psu. Then I narrowed it down to free shipping and sales. The one your picking compares well to the one I ended up at. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
I'm not buying today, :)  , it was virtual shopping.
What are you using now ? I use a antec 300, which is ok, no complaints. Availble at Best buy for 60.00 dollars.

I think that Lian Li is a bit too expensive for me right now.

I had been looking at the Antec 300 too for a long time, but my friend was building and I recommended that. I don't want to have the same case :(
