Antec900 is the best "budget/cheap/etc." case ever. I'd grab one if I had the case. Thumbs up from me and backed by tf.

Excellent case, look for a deal on it such as frys.com

It isn't too big, but big enough to hold an 8800GTX.
It cools VERY well, is very well built, and looks very good.

One of the highest rated Mid-Towers there are if not the highest rated

I dont consider $140 a budget price for a case
the centuiran 5 is a better bang for the buck

If you can get one for 90 bucks it is just as good as the Centurion 5 bang for buck. At 140 no your right too pricey

At least $180AU for the case alone, so if that deal comes with an antec or other quality psu its an alright deal. Find out what psu it has though - it might be an el-cheepo one.
