crainger: If it fits on the shelf i dont really mind. just want it to look good. Prefered colour would be black.

XDanger: That looks quite good. will all my stuff fit do you think (see below) sorry forgot to mention i wanted all my current stuff in the new case ? the gpu im more worried about as its quite long. Yep, would have to cut a big hole in the back which i dont mind tbh.

Thermaltake Speedo Advanced Package. After seeing Video Review of this Case, it was too late. I already got Antec 1200.

You'll need something like this
http://www.antec.com/Believe_it/product.php?id=MTc1Ng==

Its 45.21cm(D) so there will be quite an overhang





Better to change your mind and not put your PC in that thing.

Wow that looks perfect!

the overhang will be more at the back so it dont bother me too much. its the best im gonna get so im very tempted by this! although my stuff might overheat being in such a small case...i dont know what to do :-(

With the media center case i assume it works as a music player of some sort?

Thanks for the link
