    Hey man, I see you are also building a computer. Anyway if you feel like it you can shoot me up a PM if you need help with some parts...

    Both are nice cases, but out of these two the Antec looks more promising.

    If you want to save some money I suggest taking a look at the CM 590 as well

    Thanks but i've got the parts down. I'm sorta leaning towards the 900 because of the looks and 4 fans. Unfortunately however i still need to save up about $275 (total cost is $928 without shipping) and get a desk which could bump it up 100-150 more. My birthday's coming up in 6 months so hopefully i can get some money then.

    Don't spend 100$ on a case alone!

    Unless that has super cool extras on it, get a cheaper case.

    lol 100 for a case is pretty ok?

    I have the Antec 900 and I'm very happy with it, just spaceous enough for tall CPU heatsinks and long GFX cards. Also the PSU being on the bottom of the case keeps your wires very organized, I'd recommend a PSU with cable managment.

    Don't be fooled though, those 4 fans are going to be damn loud. I run them all on the lowest rpm, doesn't affect the cooling a lot.

    Get the 900 2! New model, revised fans and stuff.

    Checked into it. It's way more than what i want to pay (i originally only wanted to play 60 but the 900 is just so awesome), and i really like the tray in the top of the 900 that they got rid of in 900 2

    Actually, yeah. The tray is one of the features I liked on the 900 (Sold mine and got HAF932 cos I liked it better and is a full tower). Kinda disliked the fans controls on the 900 though.

    The Cooler Master, at least the 590, has space for like 8 fans
