Post so i was going to get a board, but grabbed a new case instea
i ended up picking up an antec 300 yesterday. 66$ after tax. the minute i took a sidepanel off, i knew why it was a 60$ case. i find the overall build quality is solid for the price, except the sidepanels, i find them rather flimsy to be honest. but my temps on my X3 are way lower, so i'm happy. i have no optical drives at the moment, or floppy, or card reader, since they were all white, so that might be my next thing, then a board, and a corsair hx750. my gaming rig is finally getting a little more up to date.

i should post pictures later, but that means i should clean my desk.....and charge my camera.

but i may cut a few holes in it for wire tucking, i might do that later since i still have some assembly to do

You lucky dog. I love the look of the antec 300. It is going to be the case for my next build.
oh and, :text-worthless:

lol, yeah, the 300 isn't bad. its small though, so if you get a videocard big enough, it won't fit. same issue with the 900, but in the 900 you can get around it by moving the drive cages around. at least the 300 isn't as ugly as the 900 though. but the side panels are a little flimsy like i said. oh and you need a flathead or a key or something to push the reset button, or your wifes fake nails
