Default $35 CM 690 Newegg... Should I?

Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER RC-690-KKN1-GP Black SECC/ ABS ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Retail

I am really getting tempted to order this. I want a nice, stylish, SOLID case that I can use for years.

Frankly my case is falling apart and getting dented and bent and electrical taped etc.

I was thinking about buying this and throwing in my two red 120mm fans up top, on exhaust. So exhaust would be 2 top and 1 rear, while intake would be front and side. All 120mm. I could even turn my hsf vertically so it blows UP. But then it would be pulling heat off the gpu.

augh...so many decisions, so little time!

I have decided against it alas... My case isn't really all that bad. I will likely mod it somehow to make it keep my interest.

Plus it's right around the season for spend money with friends so I have decided to save it.

More ironically, my online banking is offline until the 1st, so I couldn't transfer funds to my debit account anyway. Someone must be trying to tell me something lol...

EDIT: "No deal, Howie!"
