I just bought a Thermaltake case, the M9, and it's pretty tight for what I paid for it ($70 something dollars). I'm sure you'll like the one you purchased.
I bought the same HDD you did too, the 500GB one, I've heard a lot of good things about it.

I can't wait to throw all my stuff together tomorrow! hehehe

Haha yeah, it will. In fact, I am planning on adding some sleek LEDs to it eventually to match my Eclipse II

Went ahead and ordered the same case from ClubIT. The one I had originally ordered from Micro Center got backordered for a good while. So I should be getting it 5/6 or 5/7. What a pain, will have all my parts before I have something to put them in.
