What's your opinions on this case?

Mini p180 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811129041

It says it can fit a 8800 ( so im assuming it will fit a 280 just the same )

I have the older, bigger version. Its a nice case. Its extremely well built. My only gripe is that it doesn't provide very good cooling for my video card.

Its probably different for the 280 though because the cooler is much different than the 8800GTX.

It looks like its probably a little bit more shallow than my case but a 280 should fit as long as you can remove the lower hard drive cage. I had to do that in mine to fit the 8800GTX comfortably.

What about a psu? Could I use a standard or would i need a microatx?

I like the black interior, to bad it doesn't have a window.

EDIT: Its cheaper here http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=103_162&products_id=23477 now you get it windowed :D

Oh thanks man!

I think this may be my next case. I do move my pc a lot, and this would make it a lot easier. And its quieter and more compact.
I prefer the simplistic look too, and this case sports it very well.

I'll probably go w/ a modular psu though

And i wont be going SLI so that wont be a problem
