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.

I like the first one. Small, compact, looks to be decent air flow. 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/catal...ducts_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.

That first case you listed looks Ace bud.
