Default Case advice

Hey folks,

As a disclaimer, please ignore any newbie mistakes I make throughout my posts - I've just taken an interest in computers and I need a new one.

So, just wondering if anyone has any thoughts on Thermaltake Tsunami cases

This is the one I'm looking at, but it only has 2 case fans listed (intake and exhaust I'd assume). Don't know if that'll work out well enough or not.

For a bit of info, I'm hoping to put in an AMD 64 3700+ (S939), Asus A8N-E MB, a couple sticks of Kingston 512 memory (1024 total), and perhaps the 6800GT for a vid card (probably just stick with SB Live since all I need to hear is explosions )

It's a good case. And, yes, the fans are intake and exhaust.

If you want an extra fan, check out the version with the side window. It has a side intake fan mounted in it.

And FrozenCPU does ship to Canada.

That case should work perfectly for that system, it is semi-large for good flow, and good air filtering.

The case also gets alot of rewards and things. The only thing I hear that is wrong with it is the weight, but once the PC is built, I doubt that would be a problem a whole lot.
