I must of heard you from here Hanno as it did take a bigger hammer to fit it all the graphics card was longer than I thought it would be and with the power connections to it it's longer still.

Im guessing a bigger case is in need soon as currently the insides do look someones just thrown the cables in any old way which is on fact what I did :D

I'll admit I did need to open it up twice, the first time was to connect up the second hard drive correctly and the sencond time was to connect the power cable to the DVD drive :crazy:

But as an added bonus It took me 30 minutes to figure out why my display only had the desktop wallpaper showing.
Silly Eve only went and connected the monitors around incorrectly so the main screen was showing up on the TV which I was watching at the time :stars: who said PC's wern't all fun and games :panic:

Well the upgrade itch has been with me for some time now. Back when this PC was bought I did threaten to buy a slightly longer PC case so everything could fit quite nicely but haven't got round to it, Until now!

The itch needs to be scratched a bit more as I've just dropped some money on a new monitor and upgrading the RAM from 4gb to 16gb (for the same price as I payed originally yay!)

So a new case is in order I currently have an Antec 902 and because of the limited room inside and my messy handling of the cables the air flow is poor and everything is a bit squashed together especially around the graphics card.

Any reccomendations wold be nice :)

What about this one http://www.pcworld.co.uk/gbuk/antec-twelve-hundred-v3-atx-tower-case-10934169-pdt.html?intcmpid=display~RR~~10934169

No idea if it is any good, but it has lots of blue lights :mrgreen:

or this one http://www.google.co.uk/products/catalo ... CHoQ8gIwAA

Again, no clue if it is any good, but it does look scary!

Actually, on second thought, it looks really bad, wouldn't give that one desk space :P

I will go away now and leave the experts to make sensible recommendations :)

Mines actually yhr model just below that one : http://www.pcworld.co.uk/gbuk/antec-nine-hundred-two-atx-pc-tower-case-black-07890349-pdt.html?intcmpid=display~RR~Computing~07890349

And the blue lights are a right pain when it comes to leaving the PC on to download throughout the night.

I was originally looking at this one and almost bought it last year - http://www.dabs.com/products/antec-df85-dark-fleet-full-tower-case-736Z.html?refs=50882&src=3 I liked the idea of being able to access the fans and filters quite easily.

As for the second one, I also looked at that one as well a year back.

What about this one? It's a monolith, but some like it that way...
