hey guys.
i'm buying a new system, specs are:
-OCZ Powerstream 520W
-MSI k8n neo2 platinum MB
-AMD Athlon 3500+ winchester + Thermalright XP-90 Heatsink
-eVGA Geforce 6800 GT + Arctic Cooling NV Silencer 5
-OCZ PC3200 Platinum rev2 2x512 dual channel ram
-Audigy 2
+ drives, fans, etc..

I was going to buy a Silverstone Temjin 6 (the BIG one with the wind tunnel..) but then, i learned that the cpu placement of MSI k8n neo2 plat is too high, thus the wind tunnel doesn't let you place a HSF on the processor... I need some advice on which other case to get? Lian-li v1000 is a real nice option but $200 is a little much.. besides, the ocz powerstream doesn't fit in it..

or should i just change the motherboard. perhaps getting an ASUS a8v deluxe instead of MSI neo2 plat is not that bad? and i can also use the thermalright xp120 with a8v deluxe instead of xp90..(xp120 is not compatible with msi k8n neo2 platinum).

thanks

I really like the Silverstone Berserker if you don't mind paying a LOT less... (It looks a LOT better in person than in most photos I've seen). You'll need the Silverstone front ports add-on (~$13.) if you want front ports. Newegg carries both.
