yeah well it was between the 900 and the antec p182, and the price just made my mind up real quick. i like both the cases, but i guess in the back of my mind i really wanted the 900 more, because its supposed to cool better, and i've always had problems with temps it seems. plus it looks awesome. yeah im excited about the gt's performance increase, especially on my 24"..
