Looking good, man. I have the 10M case. That leads me to my only question- where are you going to put your floppy drive? There is only one external bay, and it is a 5.25 bay for a ODD.

Other than that, congrats!

I am also going to get something along the same line but, instead of silverstone LCxx cases, I am going with HORNET as I am planning to use it a gaming PC cum media center. Silverstone cases look pretty cool and go well with the rackmount. To me HORNET is a teasing beast and can accomodate 3 HDDs.

Thanks,

Rex

What exactly is this?

S/W SIERRA|HALF LIFE 2 IMPORT N82E16832128127 1 $34.99

If it is HL2, why is it an "import?"

i figured i might need a floppy drive to install low level software, but the more i think about it i probably wont need it. im still in the old school of people who are afraid to build a computer without a floppy i guess. at 10$ i figured better safe than sorry. i dont know how i overlooked that the case doesnt have 3.5" drive space, so i may just return it. i have already ordered the seasonic super tornado, so im going to return the antec.

If you do a search with that part on newegg it shows the box with the girl. maybe that's just their part description. the box with freeman on it is called the retail version.

Not worth the shipping to return it. It's always good to have a floppy around. I don't even have one in my case but if need by I will open the case and plug it into the MB.

nice system though and good price for all of it. enjoy!

Sweet, I love getting the packages and building new PCs. Even if they are for someone else. I just built myself a new one a few months ago. So nice.
