NZXT Guardian
It says it has

External 5.25" Drive Bays 3
External 3.5" Drive Bays 2
Internal 3.5" Drive Bays 4

what kind of computer part does each bay hold?
example: Wich one holds the hard drives?
The Antec 300 has more internal drive bays does that make it better?

Oh and another thing, As long as I have this Blu Ray Drive I should be set on playing CD's and DVD's too right?
External 5.25" Drive Bays- CD's and DVD drives (some 15in1 Media Bays or external bays)
External 3.5" Drive Bays- Floppy's and 15in1 Media Bays
Internal 3.5" Drive Bays- Hard Drives

Thanks man. I'm expecting to get my parts in by Thursday the latest.
m gonna ask some questions before hand just to be prepared.
1. When attaching my contact freezer does it matter wich way its facing?
2. Do i need HDMI cables to get an HD picture off my monitor?\
3.Anybody know of a great video that shows you how to build a PC?
4. Ive read reviews about my case and people said that the temp probes can easily break. What are temp probes?

1) have it so the fan is blowing towards the nearest exhaust fan (usually the back) to keep the case temperature relatively low

2) no, you can get an "HD" picture off a DVI (or even VGA) connector... HDMI has a high signal density and has the added advantage of audio as well, so it is generally "better" for a 1080p signal... Over DVI you won't notice any difference tho (that'll only start happening when we get even higher resolution pictures)

3) i just googled and found a couple... here's the best ones i found





hope those help you out
