I've got no idea where all this came from but I'm relatively new to this site. Anything to do with old blood?

Nope, no old blood. Never heard of, or met Mr. Accurate. He apparently feels that my use of hardware, and how much I spend is his business to criticize.

Let's get back to you,....that's more important. Sorry, I have no experience with the In-Mana 134 case you mention.

If your budget is really tight, how about this for $79.00 it's one of the best mid-towers out there.

Any suggestions for them?

Ahh I see. I was just curious and I don't really like thread hijackers, which is what it seemed was happening. No worries!

The HAF is a nice case, loaded with a lot of features that some of the more expensive cases have.

This is a nice case and is on sale.

The budget isn't terribly tight, $1000 - $1500 at the most

Also I just came across the antec 300 which is about $69.99 and just to be sure all prices are in USD. I don't know if there are any international members here :-)

The 300 is a nice case but isn't great for cable management. There isn't a lot of space between the right side panel and the motherboard tray.

The cooler master 922 seems to be the way to go. It looks like it has a lot of space inside, decent sized fans, a good price and is highly rated in the reviews

Yeah I saw that in the additional pics. It looked pretty tight

OK so it's looking like I'm going with the HAF 922. OK so what should I look at next? I was thinking the processor

It would not be fair for me to comment on the Antec cases, because I only work with full size chassis. However Antec certainly has a good name, and I've seen good advice from OhSnapWord before.

I would give thought to the power supply next.

Tell me what are your thoughts?

Power supply it is.

My thoughts are this. The more power the better, but my rig isn't going to be used for anything crazy ( no over-clocking, if that matters) mainly just games and random movies that aren't on Netflix

You can use this calculator to calculate the minimum wattage PSU you would need.

Wow there is a lot of info to input there! I don't even have half of that stuff picked out yet lol

As far as the power supply goes, my ballpark estimate was around 500-600 watts would be more than sufficient for what I want to do.
