I'm looking at the BitFenix cases, but the Shinobi, Raider, and Merc all look the same to me with the exception of the Shinobi offering a window. What are the major differences between the two?

What would you recommend for someone with a:
NVIDIA GTX 550 Ti
i5 2500k Sandy Bridge overlcocked to 4.0 Ghz

Shinobi is our most classic chassis. Raider is high airflow (Lots of mesh), Merc is our budget friendly chassis. It all depends on what you like asthetically, or functionality. Performance wise, Raider will be cooler - which is what I would take for an air overclocked SB processor.

I can't seem to find a Raider anywhere online. Any suggestions?

Also, what's the difference with the Outlaw?

Just pick whichever case you

a) like the look of
b) fits your price range

.....any of the BitFenix cases will be big enough/high enough quality for your build, so pick whichever you like :)

Where are you located? I'll find some for you. More stock is also arriving.

What's different with the outlaw is that it's just a little bit smaller than the rest of the cases, but offers an inverted motherboard tray for a huge fraction of the price. It's unique in it's cable management, and the way it's GPU's face. I/O ports are also easier to plug in.

I'm in Texas... North Texas area just outside of Fort Worth to be exact. I think I'm going to go with the Shinobi Window.

Alright. Raiders are out of stock in the US, but stock should arrive within the next week or 2.

Lockware systems, Xoxide, and AVA Direct carries the Shinobi Window.
