Default Cant Decide on a case!! <Help>

Well i still cant decide on a case, I want something that works great, looks half way decent and has great air flow / Fans


I was first going to get this

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...&sku=TC3J-2145

But was told not to...so i started looking around and

i feel this is a good combo

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811156063
+
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817153023

Also there are video reviews on both case's here

1st -

2nt -

I really like the PSU and look of the Ultra case, but the Raidmax has some awesome features and looks i really dig.

Both come up to about 120-150'ish

If anyone knows of a good combo Case / Psu for under 150 i would like to see it, this is a setup i have to stick with for a long time so, i don't want to make a bad choice.

Few things i want

Min. 500 Watts
Clear side on Case
Under $150

Psu and Case have the same link

The case is ok, but i dont see much that really stands out? No side fan for cpu / graphic...

Only 1x120 and 1x80mm fans

i like the Tool-free assembly and the price

Just mod a hole into the side of the case with a holesaw, and change all the fans to Sunon fans. Superb case

That Raidmax case looks nice if you're into removable motherboard trays and big side windows with side fans.

You can't go wrong with that Centurion either.

Also, How bad do you think the PSU that comes with this is?

Would it work ok with a single 7900GS + AMD64?

Don't go for that Thermaltake psu by the way, quite poor amperage on the single 12V rail.

I wouldn't ever use a PSU with a case unless it was an Antec case.

Get the hiper, it will last you a great deal of time, it's modular, and it's cheap.
