Actually I would Opt not to get the Lexa :Confused:

I own it and it is my god, a total whore for wire management.

Get a full tower like a Gigabyte Aurora.

I actually spent most on the backup of data.
I have owned 5 USB HDDs ( 2 are 80GB and 3 120GB)

Did you even consider my post? You're wasting about $1000 there.

Thermaltake Armor is good.
