Ok. I needed some advice. The case that my main system is in, is totally ruined. I need a new one, and I have $160. I was originally planning on getting a Fractual Design R4, and 5 Enermax T.B. Ultra Silent 120mm's for it. I was also going to get a Enermax T.B. Ultra Silent 120mm PWM for the heatsink. OR I could get a NZXT Source 210 Elite, and a 120gb Hyperx 3K. And the final option, NZXT Source 210 Elite and a Cooler Master Quickfire TK with Brown switches. I have an old Microsoft keyboard and it sucks. I also have no SSD and thought it would be a good upgrade. Please leave your opinions! :D

Keep in mind that to get the full benefits of the SSD you will either have to re-install Windows onto it or use some drive cloning software to move it over. Once you get that done with, you will LOVE the SSD :) 

Is this over-clocked or do you face any overheating problems? Basically, is it essential your case is well cooled or just something you would like.

You can't get a good case and an SSD for $160. Buy a great case and a reasonable keyboard, put off the SSD for next time.

Thanks for the reply, but I think that that case and SSD aren't the greatest.

Yeah, I was planning on reinstalling Windows anyways due to a network malfunction that caused Windows to go bad. I have a overclocked 3570k to 4.55ghz @ 1.31v. It maxes out at around 83 celcius. I also really wanted a silent computer. I had stock fans on my other case and they were as loud as a jetplane.

Well the Fractal R4 is the way to go if you want a silent case. Toms hardware recommended just the other month when they compared it to 8 other silent cases :) 

Although that means you cant afford a SSD... so which is more important to you?
