    It's on sale!

    A little more pricey on amazon, but no sales tax and no shipping (free 2 day if you have a prime account ftw)

    But I don't believe it's a screwless setup. I missed that part in your description. Sad face. But it might be. COULD BE.

    Personally I've only owned NZXT, Thermaltake and CoolerMaster cases, so I'm biased towards them, but you can check all of those out. It's in the $75 range.

    I use the AzzA Hurrican 2000. About 80% of it is covered in vents and fans. It lives up to it's name.

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listi...&condition=new below the 'featured merchants' youll see it being sold for 78.99. thats the HAF-922, awesome case EXTREMELY roomy, built for High air flow(***HAF***), and has screwless cd-roms, and screwless 'floating' hard drive bays so it makes no sound. everywhere that screws are needed, preinstalled thumb screws are there i couldn't be more happy with it. uses 200mm fams, so not only does it move massive amounts of air, you cant hear it do it...

    I was thinking about upgrading my computer case (the one i got is too small to add another gpu in)

    How hard is it to transfer all my stuff? do I need to unplug everything or can i just grab the whole motherboard and just screw it in.

    you will have to unhook everything, but it's pretty painless. do it once and your done, the most time consuming part is unscrewing the motherboard from your old tray and screwing it into your new one, the rest is just plugging everything back in, then tidying up the wires

    Which is why I swear by modular psus and nylon cable ties (though I have heard the velcro ties are pretty nice).

    Ive always been a big fan of some of the NZXT cases; good thermal layout; lots of fans and cheap. Granted if money werent an option Id be using either a Silverstone or a Windy case but those are a good $300-500
