All right, I'll see what those brands offer; thanks for the guidance.
I am curious, though... say I find a case that looks okay and will hold all my parts, that's great. Do I just run a front intake fan with a filter and a rear exhaust fan, and cover the remaining blowholes and grilles? The room the PC is in is extremely dusty. I have a foam filter on my present case and I have to wash it every week. Some cases even have slotted/open/mesh/perforated expansion slot covers, and perforations on the rear. I'll have to tape those over to keep dust out. And a PSU with a fan that's mounted on the bottom of the case? Without a filter, out of the question.
This Antec ONE is a great example. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6811129181
I do own two of the 80mm fans already; I only got them like two years ago, and that means four more years of warranty coverage
The case I have now I got second-hand for free; my public library tossed one of their workstations. It previously held a 650MHz P-III MSI full ATX board (which I kept) in it that ran Win XP Pro. The thing is, if this case were just three inches deeper front-to-back, I wouldn't be complaining.
