Default new case

well my stock eMachines is getting very cramped after i installed my new PSU because there are so many wires. Thus creating high temps so i'm thinking of buying a new case.

in particular this one
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811144151

now if i do buy this case i am eventually going to upgrade the 80mm stock fans to 120mm also i will need to buy power cable splitters for my motherboard has only one fan power plug on it. so i will need to buy at least 2 for all the fans to run.

how is this case and is there any others i should look into before i buy this?

I just picked up an Antec 900, and it's a great case. I dropped my load temps about 5 degrees over my Silverstone TJ06, and now I don't have problems getting it out from under my desk. The only bad thing about it is that it's not the easiest case in the world to wire, but I'm in the process of cable sleeving it right now.

Oh, and if you do happen to get the 900, then move the upper 120mm fan on the front up a couple of slots, so cool air is directly blown to the cpu.

Yeah, I love that case, but $300 is out of the question.

antecs are very solid cases. i wouldnt see too much of a point shelling out more than $200 on a case. I know for sure that Lambofgods second link is a awesome one, also comes in black.

Another tip if you get a 900: Keep your fingers away from the 200mm fan up top, it will hurt you if you stick your finger in it. My finger is bleeding right now because one of the giant blades god under the skin and i have a small part of the skin hanging from the middle joint of my middle finger lol.

Antec is good I didnt see the point in spending a bomb so I just got this ICute case, fairly tidy and came with to L.E.D fans one the front, for a not so bad price! Depends what you want!
