150 huh? depends if he wants a mid or full. If he wants a Mid Tower then the Antec 900 is the best. If not then the NZXT Zero, and the Gigabyte Aurora also have awesome airflow.

Whats the difference between a mid tower and full tower?

If theres no difference the NZXT Zero is on rebate and as long as it does what I need it to, it would be my choice.

The difference is obvious. A mid-tower is smaller than a full tower case. A full tower will have more space to work with, more hard drive bays, more 5.25" bays.

Theres no difference at all, on rebate.

The Antec is nice I think Ill stay with that instead of relying on a rebate.

My mother works at panasonic so Ill be getting a nice price on a HDTV that I could use as a monitor. Ill also probably be getting a job there when I apply for it.

Its gonna be a great summer.

I can vouch for the NZXT ZERO. It rocks my socks.

Which PSU did you pick? Anyway, it should fit in there regardless.

all you have to do is take the top exhaust fan off to fit it in, Unless you are using a ridiculously long PS.
