    You've DECIDED on a case but still want recommendations? Are you weird? I owned that case before... It's OK but not great, I sold it due to it being too small for me.

    I wanna know why an Antec 1200 was too small for you lol.

    You could take a look at the Cooler Master HAF 932, its a little cheaper I believe and has plenty of room for every component you could want or think to get.

    For $160 you're not going to get better. They charge like over $9000 here for that case. Just keep in mind you have to clean it out every 3 months or so. All those fans build up a lot of dust.

    Doesn't the 1200 get as dusty as hell?

    Yes it does, and it's noisy and just overall not a very good case. I love my HAF 922. It's very quiet. I would recommend that one to them but they don't like red. Although the only red led it has is the front fan and it can be shut off. It naturally comes in the shutoff position as well. I have a video of mine but I have put more red into it. :p

    No, not really. I guess it depends how clean your house is to some extent but for me it's hardly dusty at all. The dust filters stop a lot of it, obviously dust will build up no matter what you do but it's not a huge amount and for me it's easy to clean.
    Overall, it's a great case.

    The HAF 922 looks to be great for someone who plans on having their computer on their desk but I have mine on the floor on carpet, thus those vents on the bottom are a concern to me. I've been leaning towards the Antec 902 or 1200 for my new case. Just noticed on Newegg that they have the 902 for $95 after Mail-in Rebate, that's tempting. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811129058 I would jump all over that but I'm worried about how well my GTX260 will fit inside the 902.

    1200 FTW.......... and if your antec hets "dusty as Hell" then you are definitelydoing something wrong?!?!?! and as for noise, its not too bad... i have mine on my desk 30cm away from me and the noise doesn`t bother me.... if i`m working the fans are low so i don`t hear a thing, and if i`m gaming the fans are high, but the volume on my speakers is louder so again I don`t hear a thing.........
