6. Wire management is neigh impossible without a significant amount of cutting.

7. Everyone has them so they aren't unique or different.

Those enough reasons for ya?
Steel case is better than an aluminum case., You can get 3 dollar dust filters, and rarely do any cases come with them. Never said I was worried about the price. The cords length however is a major downfall. With getting modular you will have wire problems regardless, and I don't really care about what other people have.

The only thing of any use is the dust filters and the cords length. I will keep those two into consideration.

The antec 900 doesn't compare to my new case, the TJ10-BW
**** three hundred for a case, that outside of my case budget. But it is nice. Maybe two months from now, I can get that.

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.

Nice case, but to me just reading the specs it doesn't seem to have that much airflow. Is that the case, or do the rear 120mm fans do a great job.

After you replace the stock case fans the airflow is amazing.

Steel cases are NOT better than aluminum ones. Theres a reason why ALL the high end cases are Aluminum. It is lighter and pound for pound, much stronger.
