It's nice, & is ALMOST just like the one I use, an Antec "Super-LanBoy" aluminum one.

:)

* The design & layout is amazingly similar on its interior - kid you not! See photo comparisons:

ANTEC SUPER LANBOY ALUMINUM CASE SIDE PHOTO (closest analog I could get to compare to the one you're checking out):



SWING CASE SIDE PHOTO:



Very similar! I am NOT a "case-expert" here by any means, but this similarity may just be due to good design sense & experiences, OR std. "ATX 2.0" designwork gained by experience & feedback of users.

Good choice on your part imo!

APK

P.S.=> In any event, similar or not? You're going to love that layout, especially if you are coming out of less "ergonomically/efficiently" designed case interiors... I know I do, because this type of layout interior-wise is VERY easy to work with & excellent imo @ least for airflow characteristics... apk

Looks Vistaish in a 3d way but you won't really use Firewire and you still need to but a PSU with a suitable output to suit your hardware. If you had anymore on this subject give me the links because its cheap but usuall it's cheaper to buy one with a PSU included.
