    Well the time has come for me to build a new box and I want it to be dope (looks as well as performance) I want a good base for it all... something that will keep cool, have a good power supply and all that good stuff.

    The case I've been looking towards is Antec's Lanboy - http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProductDesc.asp?description=11-129-145&depa=1

    and either the Antec 430w "True430" - http://www.newegg.com/app/viewproductdesc.asp?description=17-103-908&DEPA=0
    OR
    Thermaltake W0014 Silent Purepower 480W - http://www.newegg.com/app/viewproductdesc.asp?description=17-153-007&DEPA=0 [:cool:]

    Thoughts or suggestions?

    I have the thermaltake purepower - it rocks. Only thing is that it has 4-5 strands of power connectors with 4 connectors each - it's insane. Very heavy (feels quality-like) and not loud at all when the fans are turned up all the way.

    the super lanboy is a great case imo, i have it and love it. I had to take it back for warranty work though two weeks after i got it. The power button seized to work. Another thing i dislike about the case is the fact that the front fan connector is like 6" long, so it won't reach the connector on a number of motherboards.

    I also have almost the same psu, i have a purepower butterfly, i love the thing. it is almost dead silent. However the girly looking orange, green, blue cables aren't really my thing.
