I was actually gonna go with the Antec 300 but then I came across the 690. The only thing holding me back from the 300 is that their is no side panel window.

Out of those the 690, but check out the Antec 300 and with some good fans its a mini-900 that isn't fugly and expensive

EDIT: Puddle beat me to it

I have the 300 with those fans and I would get it again with hesitation.

I'd rather use a cardboard box than the NZXT :P

Out of those, I've only worked with the 690 and of all the cases I've worked with it was the best bang for buck case I've used.

Antect 300 is very good looking case as well but I've never played with it. Probably has the edge over the 690 with cooling and smaller but I like the look of the 690.

Doesn't SurgeVel sell NZXT cases at discounts? ask what his prices are!

You might be able to buy a side panel for an Antec 300 cheaply
