Default Prices Drop? Case?

i got 2 questions...

First of all, im waiting till the ATI cards go down in price, how long will this be, im lookin to get the card VERY soon. If anyone has an idea when theyll be down that would be great.

Also, are the thermaltake cases good? I heard the fans they come with are only 2100 rpm is this true? Also, what are some other good cases around $100-$110 american. Thx

plz give links for cases

Yeah, if you really can't hold your horses then you can get a sapphire radeon 9800 pro from newegg for a solid 200. And As far as cases, I havnt used the thermaltake ones but I have a Lian Li 65-B and I love it to death. Its very very well built and has a super clean look to it. Its pretty much the opposite of a thermaltake case with all of those fancy gizmos so im not sure if its your thing, but its a great aluminum case that is light and will keep your stuff cool.
