Lots of other cases that are nice, depending on your tastes and the amount of money you want to spend.
CM storm scout on sale for $50 after rebate, also a good case http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119196
CM storm Trooper for $120 after rebate if you want big and b@dass http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119245
I would probably go with this one though thumb.gif http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811139010 $70 after rebate with free shipping!

Thanks for the review, that was very helpful. Non-removable filters are definitely a turn-off. That's definitely a sexy case.. what's the biggest difference between the 400 and 500R?

You guys have been super helpful, I appreciate it very much. Will probably end up going with the 500R.

Now I just need to make sure these monitors are good and I'll be mostly set.

Just wanted to give you a heads up that Newegg is sold out of those monitors..

I've owned one of these monitors, used for over a year and a half. Gave it to my step dad about 7 months ago so it's over 2-years old still kicking and looks great. I would recommend that to you since I've got personal experience with it. Not to mention its also cheaper than the Samsung monitor so that gives you even more money left over to get other things or just save for a rainy day. thumb.gif

No problem!

The biggest difference is the white color, the top design (the 500r has a flat top instead of the bump-up in the front, possibly leaving more room for a radiator in the 500r although they both probably use the same frame, you should be able to hide a couple fans under the top cover on the 500r, and it looks better/cleaner imo). The side door bump-out is also a bit different, being a bit wider on the 500r, allowing for a big 200mm fan instead of 2x120mm fans.

Both cases come with 2x120mm white led intake fans, and a 120mm exhaust fan, but the 500r also comes with the white led 200mm side panel fan (side panel 120mm fans are sold separately on the 400r)

Finally, the 400r is $5 less wink.gif
