looks like a decent case for its money... but mabye get one with a side fan near the CPU so it can just suck out the hot air right away.

What would you guys recommend for a cpu/gpu setup (i like intel/nvidia), something that has a bang for the buck.

I have been out of the loop of new hardware for so long I am so used to just basing my decisions solely on clock speeds when it comes down to purchasing any intel based processor when I know that isn't the case anymore.
