There's one big problem with the Cosmos. The hard drive bays are positioned poorly. There is hardly any airflow in the hard drive area, so your hdds may get pretty hot in there.

I'll give you the same advice I always give my customers - Only spend the money on a tower case if you need the space. The extra $100+ that you will save can easily go towards a better video card or an sli/xfire setup or more ram, and any of those will improve your performance more than the little bit of airflow will.
