Nice! I have to do some more research regarding the case; posted your build in the first post to see what people think. Thanks so much man!

Yeah I was hoping to mess around with some emulators and the i3 makes that possible.

Yes the i3 has the much needed hardware virtualisation that emulators are heavily dependent on

I would look into the Silverstone HTPC cases, they don't mess around when it comes to cases. They also have excellent airflow and cooling capabilities as well.

I was looking at Silverstone case before as an alternative.

Any opinion on this one? http://www.silverstonetek.com/produc...id=293&area=en

Comparing Silverstone to the current one:
Height: 5.9" v. 5.4"
Width: 17.3" v. 17"
Depth: 13" v. 16.3"

But 4 internals, 1 external, and 1 ssd

Silverstone cases like that should last a very long time and should accommodate several builds. When I decide to build one, I will spend the extra money and get a Silverstone for the build quality, the features and how flexible they are. And like I said before, their HTPC cases have excellent cooling options and great airflow so you can really get creative with them!
