Default Computer case (hope this is the right forum)

I am building a computer and need a case. I don't want to spend too much on it, but I want some thing that is not too loud, has lights and cools good. I was thinking about getting this one http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...133-105&depa=0 because all I would need to buy is the power supply. Is there a case you guys would recommend over this? And what else would I need to buy with it? Also how necessary is the fan controller? Because if the case doesn't come with it I will have to buy it seperatly if it is worth it and I don't want it to be more expensive then the thermaltake plus power supply. I would like to get a case, power supply, and fan controller and any extra fans I would need for less then the thermal take plus power supply if that is possible. Thanks!

good cooling is a must for any pc. you don't need a fan controller unless you want to moniter the speed of the fan, temp., etc. look at some cases from Antec and Thermaltak.

It has three fans.. is that gonna be enough? .... the case is awesome, but really expensive and it doesnt even come with a power supply or the fan controller which I think I need beause the computer will be in my room and I would like to turn the fans down when I go to bed. Any other case you recommend?

you, can buy a fan controler and put it in the 5.25 slot, you can get a beter one that would come on any tt case stock, you could get that new one, some thing like the hardcano 12, here's the link http://www.thermaltake.com/accessori...cano/a1845.htm , also, i read some where that it is a hdd cooler to, how does that work?

I wouldn't go with anything less than 5 fans, personally. My Thermaltake Xaser case has 7. Chieftec Dragon cases are flashy, reasonable priced, and generally have a decent amount of fans. Perhaps you should check one out. Just get a case w/o a power supply and get a seperate one.
