This one is awesome, I have it.

http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...150-017&depa=1

It has a removable mobo tray, sleek profile, cheap price, and excellent cooling. What more could you want?

BTW, the new version of that has a spot for a 120mm fan in the back, NOT 2 80mms.

The case you showed me looks like a good case dale5605. I'm not a huge fan of beige though. I was looking also at these:

http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...209-002&depa=1

I dont know if any of them have removable mobo trays but let me know what you guys think.

mostly different overall case size, and different number of internal/external slots.

I would NOT get a Powmax case though, my friend decided to be cheap and got a powmax case, in the end he paid the price dearly for buying such a cheap case.....His PSU that came with the case got on fire and destroyed his stuff.

However if you get a new PSU to replace the stock...you should be fine?
