thanks for all the help! would have made a huge mistake if you did not point me in the right direction, so much happier with the ability to play now and upgrade to i5 later. I looked at this case after your help, but was put off with the limited fans. Will it have enough airflow?

Any advice on a good air flowing micro atx case under $40? I went for the antec 300 for its airflow even though it has no front USB 3
