I don't personally like it, partially because of the styling, the lighting at the front (which if they used decent leds, will get annoying), and that fact that it's steel. Whether or not an 8800gtx/ultra will fit I don't know, but so long as you've got a little backbone and a dremel/sawsall/plasma cutter you can make any thing fit. lol
Other then that, I'm weary about plastic front pieces, especially those with doors.

Just me though. hic

May want to search around to see if the 8800 will fit, if you don't want to do some trimming.

Edit: what's your price range? Was trying to find a case about the same price, but that last one was double.

I've been looking really long and hard at this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811129021

Lots of fans, looks like it'll be good at keeping the system nice and cool. The real selling point is the power/reset buttons being on TOP of the case (where my son can't reach it! ;)

I think Hugh was posted the best case so far. I'd go with that one.

Here is one that has the place for fans on the side, a little expensive though.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119121

Then there is always the one I'm looking at as my next case. It also comes with enough power to supply anything I'll put in it.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811129028

There is also the Antec 182, or the Cooler Master RC1000, both great cases.

For someone that builds their own systems, investing in a good case can last you through a couple of upgrades.
It's well worth it to spend a little more on a good case that will last. IMHO.

The Antec 900 is the one I just got. The fan on top can make a piece of paper hover in the air. It is 20 centimeters. Friggin sweet case.

My friend (you've seen him as Happy Time Soldat on the servers) just got himself that exact case for his new system. I've seen it in person, and I must say, it is a quality case indeed. It should have plenty of room for all the stuff that you're gonna wanna stuff into it. It is very well built and sturdy. I would definitely recommend it.
