I'll look into it, and if'n I can get just a bit more cash (currently $170) I might just get it. Thanks!
I wouldn't. Apevia isn't known for making good PSUs. In fact, there are almost no reputable PSU manufacturers that will bundle with a case. (The only halfway decent PSU/case bundle I can think of is something from the Antec Sonata series
I own the Antec 900 (original, not Two), and I'm very happy with it. However, once the novelty of the LEDs and side window wears off, it's more of a nuisance than anything. My two graphics cards can get pretty loud in it, so if you're looking for quiet, look elsewhere.
Also, I find myself wishing I had gotten the 1200 because the extra space would be nice. Again, with my two graphics cards, it can be a pretty tight squeeze in the 900, but the full tower 1200 has plenty of room.
However, for my next purchase, I'm leaning toward the Cooler Master Cosmos 1000
. It's a full tower, has great cooling, doesn't have a window (but still looks very sleek), and is very quiet. So, of course, this is the case I'd recommend you get. (The price on Newegg right now - $140 after rebate - is great... It's typically around $200.)
However, you couldn't go wrong with the Antec 900 or 1200 either, as I really like both of those as well. If you really want a side window, you probably won't do better than those two. Whether to get the 900 vs the 1200 depends on how much space you need. If you have really long graphics cards, you will probably want the 1200.
Also, the price on the Antec 900 seems a bit high. I got mine for $60 with free shipping. I'm sure the "Two" version will dip below $100 on a sale sooner or later. So, the frugal part of me recommends you wait on a sale if at all possible.
