Thanks Dan. Actually I was looking at this case for a new computer in the future. I read in one of the reviews you supplied me that the 120mm fan is very noisy, do you know if it is (if you have the case already)? If so then when I get it ill have to get a new 120 mm fan ... :( lol

I have not got the case yet, can't rely on people I tell ya but I paid for it soo when I get it I'll tell ya eheh. And well as for noise like they say when your driving 4wd trucks on 44" boggers, cut out the exhaust and turn the stereo up, well thats what I do at least :P

If money is not an issue..go for 9800PRO. I replaced my 128MB DDR Nvidia 4800Ti and bought my ATI 9600xt a wks ago (Sale for $170@COMPUSA. CA. San Diego). 2 days ago saw the Advertisement @ compusa and they have the 9800 PRO sale (President day promo) for $199 ($299.. instant rebate of $70 and 30 mail in rebate). So to make story short. I returned the 9600xt and got the 9800PRO. These card is AWESOME, it'll blow 9600xt away and im darn sure it run all and upcoming DRX9 games in high up res., all up options to the max and with a good FPS. These card will last me another 2yrs. (Most game play Battlefield42 w/all xpansions, Desert Combat, Call of Duty, CS, Soldier of Fortune2, MaxPayne1n2 and CC General@1600x1200res, 4XAA and 16XAAF.

Oh yeah when the time comes, definately the 9800pro (or 9700pro). I finally got my case@!!!!! Its awsome!!! looks great and easy to install and lots of room, i would definately recommend the chenbro gaming bomb for a budget gamer out there. The only problem I have had with it is that the coolermaster light that came with it. The power inverter melted within an hour of running the case :( but I will just return it and get a nice green light instead of blue and a 120mm 4 led green fan :P

Well the fan is kinda loud but they only supply a 80mm fan as base material with a optional 120mm fan, so you will proally want to get a new one anyways. But I got my green light in and man it loooks gooooooood! :D
