Yeah, I was thinking towards the XION too. It says it's not tool less though. Does that make it a lot harder to install HD and optical drives?

I use the second the coolermaster centerion the second link you posted, but i have the one without the window... I havent had any problems with it and it works great, the power button is a little shakey but it holds up well. I have my 3000+ venice OC'd at 2.02ghz and i idle at 26c and full load at 34c, so the cooling is good... it has a CPU fan vent but its off a hair with my MB.

I reccomend it! great sturdy case.

It's

Case (I'm still thinking about it though)

Mobo

Harddrive

RAM

CPU

GPU

And just the normal CD burner/dvd burner and stuff

My main goal right now isn't to build it super powerful yet. I just want to put everything together and know it works before I try anything really expensive and big.

Whats the difference between the one you posted and this one? This one's a bit more money.

I've got another version of the first one, the Centurion 530, which is cheaper but doesn't have the tool-less drive bays. I find it excellent, and I recommend it definitely!
