    For most of the deals on Ebay and other online sites the price for shipping might cancel out how much i save and I kind of need a new case quick.

    so does circuit city/bestbuy, etc sell cases?

    Best Buy here has the Antec Nine Hundred and some Dynex case. Even shipped from newegg is cheaper than pick up price at Best Buy on the Nine Hundred by about $20 last check.

    That's a sweet case. I just moved my core 2 duo into it from an antec sonata II. Not quite as quiet, but close, plus the cooling is infinately better.

    what video card you have? I've read a couple of places that it's a tight fit for the 8800GTX (have to remove a fan housing), and I'm concerned because I plan to eventually SLi and worry about fit.

    I have the BFG 8800gtx. The case has a plastic bracket that hooks onto the back of one of the 2 removable drive chages and holds a 120mm fan. I did have room to put it on the lower drive cage, but didn't bother. 3 120's and a 200mm fan are plenty of cooling. I only have the single 8800, but with sli you won't be able to get it to fit. There is a spot in the side window to add another 120, and that one would either blow right on or suck from where the video cards would be.

    have any pictures of the inside with the video card installed? I really want the case, but I'm really concerned with the cards fitting.

    Also, is there an "off" for the leds in the front mount fans? I can't find any information that says there is, so I've already added replacement fans to my build list. Thanks.

    You have no idea. I'm extremely sensitive to the presence of light. In my bedroom, there is a smoke detector with a single, small green LED and I can't fall asleep if I'm laying on my side facing that direction. It's freaky.

    I can have a look tomorrow and see if there appears to be an easy way to disable the led's on the fans. It would suck to buy that case and have to replace 3 120mm fans that have the 3 speed control on them.
