Hey all...haven't done much with my pc in several years, built a quiet C2D rig 3-4 years ago and loved it, over the years its gotten dusty and a little louder. I'm looking forward to purchasing a i7 2600K in the next few weeks and have a few things undecided, primarily which case to use. I have my P180B, and would not be likely to do anything with it if i stopped using it. my issue with it however is that video card space is a little (lot) tight. If i get a new higher performance video card (currently an 8800GTS) i think it will be rather tight to fit in there.

Are the new cases better designed for larger video cards? Is the silverstone FC02 or P183 a significant improvement over my first generation p180?

Cheers!

Get rid of the top hard drive cage, and you'll have 15-16" of video card space to play with.
