True, although my current tower is HUGE, and it's been a pain to lug it around. I mean, I can put up with it, but whenever I take it to a buddy's place to LAN, its just a monster to carry.
I'm assuming its an ATX Full, because most
towers I've seen, others in my house and friends', are smaller than what I have, but not small enough to be one of those mini PCs (forget the technical name for them).
I'm hoping I can find an ATX Mid that will still comfortably fit a 260, yet not be much taller than what I currently have. Unfortunately, I can't remember what brand/model tower I currently have, otherwise I'd list it here.
- what i'm getting
Rather than make a new thread, I have another tower question now:
I currently phobia of picking a tower that won't keep my computer sufficiently cool. When browsing through cases, its hard for me to want to pick a tower if it doesn't have at room for at least least two to three 120mm fans. On the contrary, I've read that too many
fans can cause extensive dust buildup.
Would the case I'm leaning on be sufficient to keep the following PC cool?
