Oh, that changes quite a lot of things then. You didn't mention that in your original post.

I understand wanting to have a PC that looks "cool" and fits your style. I swapped out my Lancool K58W - a perfectly good case with a window and great features - for this windowless Antec P180. I simply liked the sleek look better. You might want to take into consideration the fact that it adds a LOT of cost however (~$140 for the PSU, then some $200? for the case itself, then another $150 for a compatible slim drive).

Perhaps you should get that and an external blu-ray drive or blu-ray drive + external enclosure? It may end up costing less than a $150 slot load blu-ray drive.
