Default which one?

Hey, whats up all. I'm back for another question for you guys. This time is not about me, it's about my friend. He wants to build a new pc(I'll be helping him build it, since I recently built mine). He has come up with everything he wants. He just doesn't know what case to get. He said he would rather have a case with a side panel window so he can show off in the inside but he said if it doesn't have one its ok. I have the A-TOP X-Blade case. Anways I suggested this one...

What do you guys think of it? Is there one around 160 that you would think would be better for the price?

cya later

nice looking case, you will have to buy the power supply seperately though.

I like the Aspire X Navigator. It has 5 fans (4 80mm and 1 120mm on the side). One fan is in the front, one on top, and the 120mm on the side. You can put the other two either on the back, or one on the front and one on the back. Only problem is that the side is set to exhaust, but I easily changed it around and now it blows right on my graphics card and processor fan (nice for overclocking, not to mention the processor getting cool air from outside the case). But, the case you have is good too. Just wanted you to see all of your possibilities.

Nevermind, they don't make the cases with a 120mm fan on the side anymore, it is just an 80mm on the side (or at least I don't see them). Go with the case you have.
