Looks good, but I bet that side fan is pretty loud.

Meh. I vote ugly.
If you want something smaller form look at the smaller silverstone cases.

I would disagree. I had a case a while back with a 250mm side fan and it was barely audible. It ran great too.

Which one

I like the first one. Small, compact, looks to be decent air flow. :thumbsup: I wish they had it in the states here. I searched google and only got UK places.

Silverstone would be the way to go, they make really good stuff. I think this would be in your price range http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=334&products_id=24920

Bearclaw believe me it is usually the other way on, and your prices are always cheaper.

The case Bearclaw mentioned... I now own (bought from him a while back). It's currently rocking my A64 FX-60, ASUS A8N32 SLi Dlx, 4GB DDR400, and dual 640MB 8800GTSs. The CPU, even at 3Ghz... never breaches 50*c, and the 8800s never make it past about 45*C... even under full load. Currently it's running everything at stock w/ low voltage, so temps are even lower. As to noise... the fan is barely audible- 250mm on the side, 140mm intake, dual 80mm exhaust. Great airflow, barely any noise. :D

That first case you listed looks Ace bud. :)

Shiiit I have had a brain storm and bought the fugly one

here is the review anyways:headexplode:

USB 2.0 and audio ports in the front panel. The high value design with scratch proove rubber coating in the front is also very interesting for system integrators. Enough space for up to 11 drive bays and also a reset switch and blue illuminated adjustable 250 mm fan for perfect cooling. You can save a very expensive and difficult to install water cooling system, also no maintenance. The internal drive bays can be cooled down by an optional 120, 92 or 80 mm fan in the front. You can use the same cooling configuration in the backside as well to additonally cool all components. The front of the 188A is having a door and a beautiful silk skin with acrylic parts design.

No claw i didn't , I bought the other one:D

Thanks guys that makes me feel a little better, thought i had made a real biggy .

Forever now known as Mr Fugly , he will land ay the drol residence wednesday, then I will install me motherboard i bought last week.
The build will be slow due to Mrs Drol stamping her feet, so parts will come along periodically.
