    help on choseing an htpc case ...

    im currently waiting for right 45/50 inch dlp rear projection tv set to come out with all the capabilitys i need , its getting closer but not quite there but thats not for here this topic is to find something to house htpc parts

    ok i want a case that needs to have these following specs ....

    enough room for 3 or 4 5.25 bays ,
    because i will have 2 hard drives one will be a 74gb raptor and the other will be a very big storage drive most likely from hitachi , maxtor or whatever .
    these will be housed in a dual 5.25 watercooled hardrive silencer hopefully eliminating there noise

    the case doesnt have to have 4 external drive bays aslong as theres 2 external and room to have the dual 5.25 silencer inside the case even if i have to chop out 3.5 hard drives cages

    i may only use one dvd rw drive in it if that helps wa thinking of keeping a bay for the likes of an audigy 2 so that i could use all its connections with the 5.25 panel

    the watercooling will be from an external source so space for that shouldnt be a concern

    the htpc will be a amd64 system which will also be used for big screen gameing and internet browseing

    any tips or pointers are always welcome
