Default Re: 3 Decisions, which one?

I just see that thing as a little small and too divided to cooling those components properly. I guess i'm just picky and like to keep my stuff in the low 30's. But especially a Quad, DDR3 1.6Ghz, 4870...depends how much extra the other cases are to determine whether it's worth it.

EDIT: off-topic, but uhh, Rooster, post another time, you'll hit 7,500 posts =O

My father in law has an iBUYPOWER system in that very same case and it runs cool as a cucumber. (It's quiet too.)

Gratz on 7,500 posts!

And...ok. I will take your word for it. Anything that runs as cool a cucumber is good enough in my book . If only mine were quiet...*counts on fingers* nope, more than that.

The HAF is only a little more and that thing is an amazing case. It's $30 here and is $2xx outside. Never hurts to spend a little extra to protect your investment. Plus, it gives you tons of room for future upgrades.
