Default Antec 300

Hi, im nearly finished planning my first build and im down to choosing a case. ive been looking around and found the antec 300. its got room for 5 fans and can hold all the hard drives i will use as well as fit my 8800gtx. I was wondering if people had any posistive/ negetive experiences with it?

I have an Antec 900 and I think it's nowhere near the best case unless you mod it. I say go Lian-Li if you are willing to spend 100-200. The Cooler Master HAF 932 or whatever it's called is really nice too, cable management is really nice.

I'm sure the Antec 300 will serve your basic needs.

the Cooler Master 690 case is good, it can hold up to 7 120mm fans, and its pretty spacey. Its a tooless case IIRC.
the power supply is also mounted on the bottom.

goo for thisone..
It has a 40 cm diameter huge fan installed.
Keeps things cold. Technicaly its a good case.
I don't quite like the looks of it, and I could even argue with that big fan,
but I think it will serve You good.
//if You got sli/crossife setup or plan to have the big fan do helps a lot..

Take the other side off and you have one of those box window fans.
