Default Computer Case

I am new to building computers and I am researching cases right now. I would like a case that has good features as well as good looks and I came across this one...http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applicatio...797&CatId=1509 and I was wondering if it was worth getting. I am fairly new so I dont know a whole lot about computers. I like this case a lot and it seems to have good features but I just want to double check. Thanks.

Ya well it has 4 fan ports so I am going to get more fans. Thats why i like it so much. Since it has the additional fan ports and the fan on the side.

depends on what you want out of the case. is it going to be by your bed in your room, in which case all those fans are going to keep you awake if you leave your comp on downloading. maybe look for a more speicalized silent case or purchase one of these: http://www.quietpc.com/uk/casefansacc.php#zmmfc1 to turn the fans down when you sleep.

it only has one external 3.5" bay. so if you have it for your floppy and you want a multicard reader for your camera card then your gunna have to find a 5.25" one.

it is a nice looking case though

I would get this one:

Thermaltake Soprano VB1000SWS Silver Chassis: 0.8 mm SECC, Front Door: Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Retail
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811133146

2x120mm fans front and back for better airflow and cooling plus the 90m side fan for the memory and CPU. Plus the the windows makes it look nice along with the beautiful silver finish.

It wont be in my room so noise isnt really a problem. And as for floppy drives... havent even touched in in years so that isnt a problem at all either. Will 3 of those 80mm fans do the trick on that? I am also looking for aesthetics of a case... so this is the nicest I have seen so far and plus it is a great deal.

Get the Antec P180. It's so nice. 120mm fans all over the place. It's really nicely designed...my friend has one.

Like the Apple G5 cases, it has really good airflow pathways.

Speaking of G5's, I can't believe they come stock water cooled. Their powerful 2.7GHz dual G5 CPUs gives big performance.

Yeah, and the Mac OS X Tiger OWNS Windows XP so badly that it's not even funny. Let's hope that Microsoft catches up with the Windows Vista.
