Not really I mean...these are the little and cheap case from CM, go with the CM 690, the big brother. Will fit your rig in with better airflow and better building quality.

Ask for more

Unless you absolutely love the looks of the Gladiator, I'd agree with going with the Centurion CM 690. Better case, better quality. I found it on for $2.50 more. Buy COOLERMASTER [RC-690-KKN1] Coolermaster cm 690 Mid Tower Black ATX Case 5X5.25 5X3.5INT No PS Front USB Sound Firewire & eSATA

Found this review for the 600, if that helps: techPowerUp :: Cooler Master Gladiator 600 Review :: Page 1 / 6

SugarJ... that's one of the reviews that I read.
Kinda made me at least want to consider it as an option.

The person it's for doesn't really care for the look of the CM-690.
Maybe without the blue LED, but still, she doesn't really like it much.

Anyone want to suggest a decent case for an i7 build that's around $80?

If that's the case she wants, just get it for her. I don't try to change peoples minds once they've picked a case they like. It's a new line for CM, you probably won't find much feedback on that case yet. Looks like the same airflow as the 690. I just didn't like the front on it.
