My System Specs

Default Suggestions for a large ATX with....

the capabilities to run SLI, 4 hard drives, a consealed optical drive, and a fullsized ATX power supply.

I'd prefer to keep the cost under $300.

0o0o0, I also want to be able to fit a rather large heatsink in it as well, which is my main concern.

I want an HTPC case though, as the reason this thread is in the HTPC forum

I already have a Black Pearl and a Stacker 832 both of which are huge, which I am getting rather bored and tired of.

I think I am actually going for the LC17B. Good price and I don't need stuff like a volume knob and LCD screen. It gives me money left over to buy that Lian Li xbox360 case to boot.
