Looks OK to me. You might also compare it to the Cooler Master HAF 922.

Yup, I also agree on the HAF 922. If you must go with a mid-tower case the 922 is one of the best cooled chassis available.

If you can handle a full tower case, the HAF 932 Advanced seems to move more air than most others, that's why so many gamers with multiple graphic cards use it.

Been looking at the case you suggested, looks very nice, I am instantly put off purely because it's Cooler Master and the case I wasted my money on is also the same make, but I guess that's my fault for not researching properly before buying purely on the basis of aesthetics. I have to say though putting that aside, I am very tempted, but it's possibly a little more than my budget

I once had a girlfriend that was all show and no go, hehe!
Then check out the Cooler Master 912 ...

COOLER MASTER HAF 912 Plus PC Tower Case - WAE+ http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B002FOEI0...SIN=B002FOEI0M online computer shops seem to overprice this quite a bit, I have found the cheapest deal I could for both cases, however I have never heard of wae+, are the reputable. also is the difference in price here worth spending extra for the latter version? the reviews for both seem to be very good from what I have read

If budget is an issue, your original case pick, the Gigabyte, would seem to have good airflow/cooling though I've never used it. You might have to add a fan or two though ...

Just about to order my new case, just a final quick check before I do, I have decided to go with the recommended Cooler Master haf 922, is this the right one? as this is the cheapest I can find it Cooler Master Tower HAF 922 with Transparent Side Panel: Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories

Also I noticed this particular one has a side panel whereas the one that doesn't is nearly 20 more http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00290GKJ...SIN=B00290GKJO
