Default Goodbye old case

I have a new case that is being shipped, and I will post pictures for it. But here are the pics for my current machine:


(That's an $200 Audio System and I have a newer desk now)


(The lack of space made for cramp conditions in the case, possibly constricting airflow, though I never go light on how many fans I have in the case. Also KEEP IN MIND, this is my computer before I upgraded to the AMD 64 3000+... it is my Barton 2500 CPU and mobo)

So all in all, I utterly hated this case. I spent hundreds on parts, and never got around to replacing the case itself.

This is the new case:


(Raidmax with 5 5.25 bays)

I haven't received it yet, but it is in the mail. Once I have it all set up, I'll post new pics. It is an aluminum case with 6 80MM fans. It cost me just under $100 (including taxes and rush delievery). The shipping itself was free. The case is very spacious and has much more space then many modern cases out there.

That is the exact case that I bought. I cant wait till I can get the rest of my parts and put it together.

You can get it from www.newegg.com

Also just to let you know if you are going to be running an Athlon 64 you will need to get a better PSU. I was pissed when I found out that it was not strong enough to run the 64's.

Don't worry. I already have a almost brand new 480 watt PSU in my case and I will replace the 420 watt with that one. Tell me 480 watts ienough.
