Default Which case?

My other thread got deleted, I think.

Anyways, which case would you choose

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811129155

OR

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811119068

So at first I thought the coolermaster was the better but after researching the the antec it seems to be VERY good. But I'm sure the coolermaster is too. Just can't make up my mind.

Although, I'm not sure what that giant black tube in the Antec case is. It seems to obstruct much of the room inside the case.

And while I'm posting, does this mobo http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131569
have an integrated RAID card so I can install 2 HD?

Thanks.

I'd get this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811129155
pretty much because it comes with a rock-solid antec 450W psu. yeah, your mobo can support raid.

Yeah, I was definitely leaning towards that one. But can someone please explain what that big black tube looking thing is?

Don't worry. A lot of threads apparently got deleted. I've noticed some of mine are gone too. Must've been that transition to the new server as David posted.

The Antec case is very similar to the Coolermaster, but it may be build a little better and comes with that 450 watt powers supply which is adequate for you. I would get that one. It may cost more, but you get more for your money.

As for the motherboard, yes it does have an integrated RAID system. You have the option of setting up RAID for your IDE drives or SATA drives.

Extra ventilation. It's right by the GPU/Chipset area, so it provides additional cooling without having to use a fan attached to the side panel. It doesn't really come with a fan, but if you think you need the cooling, then buy one.

Would I have to remove it to install the motherboard?

The shaft, that is.
