Hi, I have the opportunity to buy a really good condition Cooler Master Cosmos 1000 for $60. Should I get it, or should I get some other full tower case after saving a little more.
Help would be appreciated! Thanks! :D 

My Rig,
Core i3 2100 (want to upgrade to Ivy on Black Friday)
ECS P67 H2-A2 SLI (It's one of the few great motherboards that ECS has made)
Muskin 2x2GB DDR3 1333Mhz
Zotac GTX 560
Antec 300 Illusion
Antec HCG-750
DVD-Burner
1TB Seagate HD

It's a little old and a used case I suppose, but as long as it's in a good condition and given the fact that it normally would cost about 3 times as much ...... ;) 

Besides, that little bit of hardware doesn't need a full tower.

What is wrong with the Antec 300 illusion?

If you lust after the case, go ahead and buy it.
Otherwise, spend the money elsewhere.

I might want to get a larger video card like 10in+ and the 300 has really no space to hide cables so they would get in the way with a 10in+ card. My question is, is this a good case to get or should i save up and get something else. The 300 is also pretty loud even on low speed so I would like something quieter. I'm not saying the 300 is bad. It really is a great case, but I saw the cosmos so should I get it?

Thanks again!

Corsair 300R. A really good case for just about 60 bucks. Plenty of space for long video cards. Just in case you really want a new one. :)

Well I did say a fulltower case but i really mean just something bigger than the 300 that has better cable management. So is the Cosmos a good choice.

Yes, good choice, especially at the price you are getting it at!
