Thermaltake Tsunami or Armor

7900GT is one of the best deals if you can find one.

$229 is way too much for a case. unless you're buying a $3000 rig or something.

this one looks cool

I like Thermaltake Armours, they are a tad bit more than the Antec P180's

if u are getting the armor/kandalf, make sure u get the aluminum silver one. cuz the black one is made of steel. u need a forklift for the steel one. and u only need a hand truck for the silver one.
