Thank you. Mid-tower was what I had figured was best but it never hurts to ask. I'll prolly just pick up a CoolerMaster Steel/Aluminum. Hmmmm... I wonder if I can get it custom painted at my job, that would be sweet.

Mid tower is for most everybody unless you have SLI and watercooling. I have a mid tower for 2 machines that both have some sort of huge HSF and a 7800GS. They both have 2 HDs, one DVD RW and a Live Drive. All they have for cooling is 2 120mm fans and thats it. I keep my temps pretty cool i believe.
