I'm a big fan of the Antec 900, and I own it.

What is wrong with it? There aren't many cases on the market that have better cooling. The case is like a second air conditioner in my house.

the antec 900 is not a bad case. its extremely quiet compared to other cases with the same amount of fans.

Hey man, wait at least until January for the Q9300 and Q9450, use your old PCI-E card until February when the 9 Series comes out. A $1500 budget should just be about enough. That's what I will be doing.

And why can you only purchase from NCIX? Do you have coupons or a gift card from there? Their shipping costs are ridiculous. I'd recommend Direct Canada, Canada Computers or InfoNec over NCIX. Tiger Direct's the worst though. Sometimes NCIX has a free shipping promo and that's about the only time I'd buy parts from them.

It helps that all the fans are nice and big. I have it, and the 200mm on top is at full speed, and I can barely hear it. The 120s can get loud if you turn them up all the way, but it isnt bad at all.
