Alright, sounds good, thanks.

I use the 1 SSD for my OS, and certain programs/games and 3 other HDD's for storage of music,movies, etc.. so I guess I'll need something a bit bigger.

Well, after holiday break when I get back to my computer I'll take a look at the card and see what I need to do. I'll also check the 560Ti threads and see how they go.

The 600T is a great case, You'll have enough room, and the cable grommets are more than large enough to accommodate many hard drives and other things.

Do you know of any that are cheaper? I know that's probably asking a bit much, but I can't justify spending 200 dollars on a case as a student.

I forgot about the fractal design R4; it is pretty good for the price.

The CPU cutout is a little small, though.

That one's mostly down to personal taste, but it does have a few horrible problems, such as:
CPU backplate cutout too small
8 pin cutout too small
other cutouts are annoyingly small
useless cable grommets
vented side panel
vibrates sometimes

Before I buy a new case I'm gonna take a stab at my apevia x-trooper and figure out if I can re-route wires and get better airflow, so find a new case. That one you linked looked nice with 1 inch of space behind the mobo plate, but I really do like the side window :S

I have another question - what is the push-pull setup a lot of people are referring to? I'm gonna take a guess and say that it's one fan pushes and one fan pulls air but for what purpose? I don't understand why you'd want to have air moving in two different directions in the same spot??

You could go for a Corsair 300R with a window; it certainly isn't going to be all that big, but it is definitely not a hard case to build in, if you have 4 or less hard drives.

Push pull is a configuration where a fan on one side of the radiator pushes the air through and a fan on the other side pulls the air out. It's useless if you have good fans and/or a thin radiator. I used to run it for redundancy, but the redundant fan broke... lol
