I'm going to be building my first system this summer. I'm planning on buying the parts over the next few weeks.

It's an X58 i7 build. I'm hoping to have the final price after rebates be around $1300. I'm planning on getting a 5850 or a GTX 470; I haven't decided. I probably will grab a second card in the future though.

Anyway, I didn't want to spend more than $90 on the case. I'd like to do a Mid-Tower, and these cases seem well reviewed and spacious enough. Is there any other case not mentioned that is better than these?

I'd appreciate any information.

Antec 900 - I realize it's above the $90 price point, but I could splurge if someone convices me it's worth the extra $10-$20

The Rosewill looks like it would have the best cooling by far and when you're dealing with hot-high performance gpu's like you're saying, you need all the cooling help you can get.

are you completely opposed to full-tower, generally they can have much better cooling...... and they're in my opinion better for a performance machine
