I'm sure I'm missing something obvious but I need some suggestions for a case.
This will be a general use home pc mostly used for music and some games(nothing too intense), photos and some SOHO too.
I'm putting in an Asus P5Q-E board, E8500 and the case will be air cooled.
What I'd like the case to have is at least 120mm fans front and rear and 140mm or larger on top.
Connections on top for USB and Audio.
For now I'll be using a Nvidia 9800 GTX or ATI 4850 video card.
The cooling needs to be very good.
And I'd like to do this in as small a case as I can find.
Really hope you can help with this insanity.
Thanks.

Here are a few I found on newegg. You have to click the specifications tab to see the fans they have, if pictures don't help you.


http://www.newegg.co.....0Godspeed Two $54.99 Cheapest, but no front fan???

http://www.newegg.co...N82E16811133074 $104.99 Thermaltake

http://www.newegg.co...N82E16811133071 Almost the same $109 Thermaltake

http://www.newegg.co...N82E16811133021 Lots of cooling $149.99 Thermaltake

http://www.newegg.co...N82E16811129021 $109 Antec Nine Hundred (Popular from what I hear)

http://www.newegg.co...;Tpk=VI90001N2Z $159.99 XCLIO Godspeed

Another option may be to buy a cheaper case with a front and rear 120mm fans and cut your own window and fan hole using a kit like this

Crazypc.com

Not sure if any cheap cases come with the audio ports on top though, I would have to look.

Hope this helps, I have yet to build my own pc(will this summer) but I look at hardware and cases daily on a few sites.
