im the middle of getting parts for my first custom build pc. i currently have a x-cruiser which i modded myself with different fans and things, and i thought well if im going to make a new build i could at least get a case that looks good, but should have quality airflow. preferably the atx case should have a slide out mobo tray, and screwless design. i dont have a price range as such, but was hoping to pay only around £25-£60 with a 400w or higher psu included. Ive narrowed a few choice cases down, including a few that exceed the price i hope to pay. maybe someone can help out, its cooling ability is a strong point. Also the psu i have in my current pc is 650w which will go in this new pc, it will be overclocked on a quad somewhat with a very hot 8800gt 1gb super card running, so thermal cooling is defo a must.

Anyway, what ive got in mind so far (in no order):

Raidmax Sagitta 2
NZXT Guardian 921
NZXT Apollo Silver ATX
Gigabyte 3D Aurora
Jeantech Phoong II

i think the first one is the only one that cones with a 500w psu rather than 400w, this might be the better choice as it does have a 200mm fan
