Considering buying this one:
Case Product Page

but there are alot of cheap ones on the site.

I realize I was off-topic posting that, by the way, but b1gapl's opinion on mobo's is so much better than mine that I won't even try to offer one once he's spoken.

"i don't know what happened.... i was looking at the case for fun... and i noticed that they had a 90$ rebate and it has free shipping?? If this is a newegg glitch.. lets take advantage of it, and buy it ASAP, and if i don't like it, to eBay!!"

thats a direct quote of what my friend said...
