Default Finally bought my new case

After some serious research and hunting for what I wanted in a case, I found one...

Newegg.com - SILVERSTONE TJ09-BW Black Aluminum ATX Full Tower Computer Case - Retail

(I know this is more of a rant/rave post, but still...)

Should have it some time next week! The only draw back is... now I'm really broke! LOL

What about the Cooler Master RC-832? Now that's a full tower. It's also cheaper.

edit: oops, disregard my post....I didn't realize the title of the thread, said you already bought the case.

I looked at that case and honestly... I use my dvd drives SO much that I don't like a case with a door on it...

The Antec 900 is nice... so nice in fact it was one of 3 that I tossed around...

the Silverstone
the coolermaster stacker
and the Antec 900

all of them have nice features, but I like a clean looking case, but I think I choose this one for the over all look of it... the side window, the PSU on the bottom, and side mount HDD slots...

yea the price was out there, but as someone once said on here... you get what you pay for... and brother, lemme tell you... I have paid for this, many times over... in more ways that just money...

LMAO!! Ohhh no... Momma's real happy... she has a backyard to plant and flower beds, and all kinds of wild life, and her own room(s) and a house to call her's, etc... (hey... at least I have an office now)

What I actaully meant was that I paid for this build, in time, older /cheaper /used parts, and yes some blood... (I hate a cramped case)

when I could have saved my money and bought the good stuff at the start. but it's all good.... learning is a slow process.... and it usually gets worse, before it gets better...
