    I would have to say 900 cuz i own 1, But as stated by many members here, they are a real peach to try to hide wiring. If you dont mind the wires so much it may be the right choice.

    I have heard good things about the ARMOR JR. and that windtunnel XCLIO is a different alternative to the norm. I like it. These also look like there is more "hiding places" than the 900.

    Good luck bro ,for me the case is one of the hardest decisions I made....still got the 900 based intirely on airflow, knowing I was gonna have to take the dremmil to her eventually.

    I agree, great case, i wound up getting Silverstone TJ09-BW, but this was my second choice, from what i've read you can fit a gtx in there.

    if you want one on the cheap get a coolermaster 690 like mine, it has better cooling and cable mangement than the antec 900, if you want to buy top dollar get the armor or a stacker.
