Unhappy Case Fans

Hey guys. I'm going to be building a PC in the near future as I plan to go off to college next year. I have my main components in mind however, I cannot decide on a case. I have two in mind but they have different size fans. One has five 80mm fans. (My brother owns this case) The other case has three 120mm fans. The one with 80mm's is louder than what I want but I've been using an HP for a while so maybe I just haven't been exposed to that many custom cases. I have never heard 120mm's run so I have no idea about the noise level. If anyone could help me I'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks for your time.

120's run quiet, as they use lower RPM's to push the same amount of air.

As to your poll, the playing field is getting level again. The high end is still pretty fierce, though, with the X1950XTX coming out.
