    If they can price it low enough I might be interested in getting one ! But i'd need to find out if it'd take a rad' or two and see what reviewers make of the cases build quality and quality of the PSU.

    Doubt it will be that cheap, some of the components seem pretty premium, killer lan, soundblaster (not sure on that), gold psu etc!

    Pretty powerful for a lan case with a 290 in it(i think with that setup ttl review said it was about £1000, so not too cheap), but the mess of cables&no window would instantly put me off (oh and the price ) Maybe i'm just too used to Mid tower cases

    If it is €400-€500 then i'll go back to my original plan of a getting prodigy and modding it a bit. I can do that for £190 with a high end asus board for £190 and just use my current PSU.

    Looks schweet, not sure about the 92mm fan, hope it can fit a 240 or 120 AIO water cooler. If it does and this MSI Z87I GAMING NIGHTBLADE is as good as the MSI Z87I GAMING A/C I'm in!

    They kinda missed the mark imo with not including 120mm slots for aios and or custom fans. I could see cooling being an issue possibly if you are planning to overclock.

    Won't see many 780ti's that recommend a 600W PSU.80% Gold will give you 480W, which isn't a lot of headroom.
