If you can afford it, sure its a good case and can house a mATX, but won't this completely blow your budget?

Don't buy this kind of thing on impulse. think it over a bit.

With a PROMO code, it's only $4 more (after MIR), considering it will come with fans. So technically, it's a better deal than the other one. I am going to buy it, probably, if I will get the MIR... and, well.... I am worried about the MicroATX issue. Are you sure it will be able to house it??

Yes.

I have to ask...How do you need $60 in fans for an athlon II build?

I dont even have $60 in fans.

BTW raidmax cases come with 2 fans. one is garbage, the other is loud.

No, No, No. I was planning on getting an Ultra Case for $55 that didn't come with fans. So i was going to buy a $6 fan, bringing it up to $61. Then, I saw this. For $4, I will be set and have a huge case for when I want to upgrade. Some day, I want this to be a gaming rig. Maybe for Christmas/my Birthday (May) I will be able to ask for $40 more in RAM, and for Christmas, a $160 graphics card. I don't know!! But, this definitely leaves my options open!

well then yeah go for it.

Raidmax cases are fairly cheap build though, just to warn you. The hinge broke on mine, and I removed the side fan to find that the side window was cracked under it.

It also feels flimsy, but for the price they look awesome.

Though, I'm sure an $100 case is better than a $50 one all the same

it kinda depends. A lot of times when they make the case look better, it will cost a lot more.

I have a different raidmax case that is the same as the smilodon but with a different door and side panel. It was $50...

I am going to get it.

Only concern....

WILL I GET THE $15 MIR?? If I don't, this will suck. Big time.

And the PSU people say has a hard time reaching the motherboard. Will this problem be increased or decreased with a MicroATX??

PLEASE & THANK YOU ASAP! My dad is ready to buy it for me (Well, I'll pay him with my cash, just he is going to use his Newegg account)

Cm690 for 8 dollars more. Sounds like a much better deal to me.

EDIT: They raised the price to 79.99. So it is infact 18 dollars more.
