I might even get a stacker as they seem to go on sale for $150.

The main reason why I like this case so much is because I can mount my PA120.3 rad in the bottom of the case, which would make my build a lot cleaner. I plan on going to LAN parties soon and the way my rad is currently mounted will not work for transportation. Also, I cannot stand the Antec 900 in terms of cable management. There are ways to hide cables and I could do it (it would be a large modding project), but the end result is that I'm going to need more space for more hard drives in the future, so I might as well upgrade now. In my cases current state, I will only be able to place 3 hard drive in there (my pump is located in the lower section).

Also, I don't see why anyone would need two PSU bays.

You wouldn't. Some people like to overestimate the amount of power they really need.

I think clubit.com usaly sells the stacker 830 for $158. It a awsome case, It is big but I like big.Thing bulit like a tank.

Problem is I'm canadian and shipping a case from the USA would cost nearly as much as the case itself. :)

I just bought a new mouse and dvd burner today.

Just some Pioneer SATA dvd burner. Razer Copperhead gaming mouse.

Getting used to a new mouse is always a bit tedious, but it's really nice.

I built out this rig around 4 to 5 months after the mobo on my old machine died and I wanted a fresh start

  • Antec Nine Hundred Case
  • ASUS P532N SLI
  • Intel Core 2 E6750 @ 2.66Ghz (I may OC it at some point, idk)
  • Antec TruePower 500W PSU
  • 2GB Corsair XMS2-6400 RAM @ 800 Mhz
  • EVGA 512MB Geforce 8600GTS
  • Pioneer DVR-212D SATA DVD-RW
  • WD 250GB SATAII
  • Zalman CM9400 Copper Heatsink (its HUGE haha)

Im pretty satisfied with the overall performance. It runs idle around 34C and under full load it never breaks 50C. The next addition I see getting is a 2x500GB RAID 0 setup primarily to get all my data (mostly music) off my 500GB external and redudency.
