Dunno if you've seen this review, but they say the handle on this puppy is of questionable value:http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/cases/2007/12/05/apevia_x-qpack2/4
I guess the best alternative might be:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811112223
and maybe the color will attract her
You definitely want a vid card w/shroud and rear exit air flow.
The 5770 is a good choice, especially if her screen is 1680 resolution.
The biggest problem with heat might well be her stacking stuff on top of this cute little box and restricting air flow.
I get no extra credit
