I don't really think its worth it tho, the Azza 910 has all those features and more. The best thing is the price: $50 + MIR which you WILL get b/c the UPC code is properly labeled and it is a in-house rebate.

Fair enough, to each their own really. I love the CM 310.

You all have definitely given me a lot to consider. Just a few things I dislike from each case so far:

Beta - one of the more expensive ones
CM 310 - poor wire management (btw, is there a fan for the hard drives? It doesn't seem like there are any vents on the front to allow good airflow)
Helios - mobo tray doesn't look too inviting, but not actually too bad. However, the red version looks so bad...

I have a winner. look at the beautifull little thermaltake I found , not looking bad at all. look at the ventilation of that case.. and few cents under the budget....

There are Vents for the Front Mounted Fan. Wire Management might be tight but that just means you need to be creative :)

Haha my bad. I understand that I will have to make sacrifices to keep it within budget. It just depends what I have to sacrifice: form or function. That thermaltake one you found is actually quite interesting.

I have a few months to decide before I build, so I just thought I'd get some input now and gather as much info as I can, then just sit and watch the markets so I can get good sale prices.
