How about:

BitFenix Merc (39 USD): http://www.xoxide.com/bitfenix-mercalphacase.html

BitFenix Outlaw (49 USD): http://www.xoxide.com/bitfenix-outlawcase.html

or BitFenix Shinobi (59 USD): http://www.xoxide.com/bitfenix-shinobicase.html

all of them outplay the ANTEC you have linked in terms of specs...

LOL, yea, hopefully it will be a nice surprise for him!!!! Thinking about letting him have all the hardware and us build together or build it and give it to him that way???Maybe "Santa" will bring it


But this case should work? i might add later another video card and want some cheaper aftermarket cpu cooler! just worried about size!

NZXT Source 210 $43 to your door. Also comes in all black. This case is solid, you would just need to add an extra fan or two.

Oh, and about the case, try to get one that's made of steel. It's gonna be stronger and more quiet than the lighter aluminum ones. Antecs are good. i've had the NZXT Betas, they're really good for a first time build but they're not as sturdy as some other cases.

Get him something that is not gonna bend and scratch easily. Don't underestimate the importance of a good case.
