Default Picking out case

I want a new case...
it gets boring looking @ the old 900

here is couple that I liked
LIAN LI Lancool PC-K7B Aluminum/ SECC ATX Mid Tower Computer
looks like it has great airflow with 2 front intake fans
5 HDD slots
PSU is top mounted, wouldn't it be fighting with my CPU fan for air?

LIAN LI PC-7FW Black Aluminum ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
looks nice
only 4 HDD bays w/o buying a 5.25"->3.25" bay converter

large, lotta space
I can't find one near my area (darn, shoulda bought one 6 months back)

If I were you I would probably get the first one which is 89.00 plus shipping, plus you have to decide what would be best putting your hands into if they are big like mine and finally how much aggrevation and tension your arms and shoulders can take trying to put in a ATX or mid micro atx mobo.

I like the second one it has a bit more style in a blue fan that glows and scares the **** out of you in the middle of the night if you wake up dizzy and confused
If your on a budget right now look at the first one, if not bust out visa card and buy the second case and make sure to send me one...
