that one is the best i saw in that list, in your price range

I think you are right. I'm just wondering if i will benefit from the model up? It would give me an extra 30gig for an extra £40.

11 inches is a half inch too big for the scout.. but it can be done. We usually find Mobos that have a high placement for the PCI x16 so the card will go inside the DVD drive bays. Or you can take out the HDD bays and shorten it to give room for the extra length of the card.

The card comes in at like 10 3/4" to be exact. Does the HDD cage just come right out?

Next will be deciding on what to do about a new front fan, as I'v been contemplating that one for a long while. Kinda leaning towards putting in a red Enermax Apollish Vegas into the 5.25 bays...

I'v been experimenting with one of the CM R4's that I took off my side Panel a couple weeks back. Put one back into the case and been trying different placement ideas to see what happens. One thing I noticed, I put one into the HDD bay to see if it might help improve the existing front fan...

Not a damned bit of difference. In fact, could not even feel any airflow from it, which makes me really wonder exactly what good, the stock front Case Fan really is, considering the entire HDD bay is blocking about 80% of its air flow....

I am also contemplating taking out the stock blow hole fan on the top, and putting the other R4 there, but reversed and running as an intake. I'v been wondering whether having an exhaust fan there is stealing air flow from my H50. Any thoughts on that?

I plugged my Apollish that's running in the top bays into the MoBo and you most definitely CAN feel the airflow from that fan. The bottom one? Well you can KINDA feel some air thru the drive cage from my new Rosewill. Not much. I'm thinking of fastening the old fan inside the cage with some zip ties to help.

I would love to see you use your side window as an exhaust fan and the Blowhole as a puller. That would be interesting . But I think the fan in front is more for equalizing the pressure in the case or not. I can remember there was some guys in the first 200 pages and they were playing with using air blocking under the DVD drive and then putting the fan in the hole and creating a more enclosed atmosphere in the front to increase fan pressure. Kev_b is currently using a inner case cork liner. I am very interested in what will be the end result of this.

I am partial to the Intel, but I would get the OCZ Agility 2 because the 20 extra GB is a lot! and it will make a world of difference, you will not have to pay as close of Attn to it as you would with a 40GB

Yes I have been wondering if the top fan would be better blowing on my NH-D14?
But my video cards over heat without the side fan on them, and yes I know so many peeps here don't use a side fan but for some reason I need mine.
