The Antec 900 was my first case, airflow was great, but aspire has good points, its heavy, gets dirty really easily, wire management was a *****, and its pretty cramped inside...There are like 20 screws to take apart if u wanted to install a HD... The antec 900 doesn't compare to my new case, the TJ10-BW

You guys are aware that the 4870x2 is ALOT more expensive then the gtx280 atm.

Maroon1 just posted gtx280's priced at below $400 and the 4870x2 is sold out on newegg atm and is priced at $570... Which means it's not going down in price ANYTIME soon.

I am not a fan of Nvidia lately, but the gtx280 is still one **** of a card.


Below $400 BEFORE MIR.

I like heavy cases, My current case is like aluminum and it seems way to flimsy and I bought the Thermaltake Armor+ and it's about 45lbs, which is twice as heavy as my 2 year old nephew, but atleast I know it's sturdy =p

My Gigabyte Aurora is perfectly sturdy. And with my water cooled computer it still only weighs about 34 lbs.

Helped a friend build a computer in an Armor, weighed wayyyy too much. He had like 6 hdd's which didn't help things either, but his weighed a good 60 lbs.

Nope.

Water cooling adds something like 4-6 lbs

Ya, I've got a similar build to aspire's, water cooled and all. And idk how many times in the past week I've picked it up with one arm and carried it to another room. It's gotta be less then 40lbs.

Hey, that is a good idea.

Buy his case, and get a free decent video card to give to your girlfriend or w/e...
