That is true...

Also, if you're ordering online... you might want to shop around. Newegg's higher shipping charges on cases kind of hurt.

I personally suggest the CoolerMaster Centurion 534. You can get one with MIR to about $36

i vote centurion 5.
the front vents will make a big difference in air flow if you throw some fans up in there.
i have a good rosewill case, and i built my moms office/killer gaming rig (lol) with the centurion 5. i wish i had given her mine.
