Have you considered the Antec Fusion case? It's considerably cheaper than
the silverstone, and already includes two 120mm case fans and a 430 Watt
I also like the Scythe Ninja Mini CPU Cooler, it's practically designed to
fit inside the Antec case and it's possible to run it without a fan (on my
board it sits right next to the case fans)
If you listen closely, you can hear my system from maybe 1 meter away.
If you're planning on ripping and storing videos on the box, you'll want a
HDD that is considerably larger than 250GB
I have 1.3TB and I need to add another drive.
