    Alright so I'm thinking of this build, eventually I think I'll get myself another Videocard and use SLI but until then one card it is. What do you guys think, any suggestions?

    Im looking for a Decent Mid sized tower but cant seem to find one, I want to overclock a bit and im worried that airflow won't be good enough? is that a problem or shoudl i stick with a full tower? or is it no difference?

    full tower will give better airflow, just use enough fans to keep a constant flow

    Mid tower will be fine. Just make sure the case has 120mm fans, particularly one in front of the drive cage.

    I put together a very similar system as that one.

    eVga 7900gt superclocked, E6600, 2gb, Plextor, and a pair of Raptors.
    But I used a micro atx Intel board with a Micro atx Antec case.

    If this new one had been out, I would have jumped all over it.

    I'm very jealous of that case!

    I like that case... but are the lights controllable? i.e. off/on when the unit is powered on? I sleep in my computer room most nights and those lights would drive me nuts. :)
