Vibration wont break your hardware, it's just anoying and pisses of everyone around you.the 922 is bigger. the height is about the same but the 922 is longer and larger so more place to play in and swap hardware. Also, the toolless system for 5.25 and 3.5 drive is pretty nice and easy to use. It's a awesome case, my main concern about it is the look but that's ME. If you like it, stop searching and get it.

Glad to see you get a winner! You will be happy with this one I think and it's not that heavy around 22-24lbs which is pretty mid for a mid tower. Hope you will have fun swapping the system from case;) Keep us updated!

850 will be enough unless it's a crappy unit. I think your was a CM 850 I am right?

for the OS now, it would be dumb, totaly dumb to go with XP. If you go I7 you will be stopped at4 gig of ram, and what the point of putting 2 DX 11 card when XP can;t run DX 11. Get windows 7 home 64bit (64bit is important). Also, most of the software work on windows 7 as they work on vista, just have to use the compatibility mode.
