So you're waiting until next November? :heink: 

Do not purchase that case - Diablotek makes a lot of horrible hardware and they should not be patronized by anyone. Here's a case for $10 more that's infinitely better: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

+1 on the anti-Diablotek comment. They are horrible.


Dang, $900 gets you a pretty awesome PC these days.
