if you want a tempest you can buy from surgevel for $100 with $22 shipping...comes out to be the same price as newegg but without the stupid mail-in rebate. I think it's a great looking case personally

it has better wire management then the antec 900, and has better cooling, it's a great case, if u want to spend a bit more you could get an antec 1200...they are sweet.
