    Those cases you linked are cheap price wise, but shipping(18.65) /rebate kills the deal, imo(58.64ar, 78.64before rebate). Consider
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119047
    a case that is 49.98 shipped. You could always mod a window into it anytime.
    Here it is in silver, and still cheaper (39.99+18.65shipping for the NzXT)

    with a bonus PS for a friend/family member!

    I just got myself an Antec 300. Awesome case, fits my 4870 nicely (with space for one more), looks awesome and the cooling is fantastic (I stuck 3 Akasa Silent Blue 120mm fans into it, keeps everything very cool). Its about $60 on Newegg, but I'm sure it can be had for cheaper elsewhere.

    EDIT: Oh and I wanted to ad: I got mine for around €40 and I am absolutely blown away by the quality. It is really a superbly built case. Nothing at all feels flimsy about it, even the plastic bezel on the front feels solid and well made. Also, if you do get the Antec 300 and your 4870 exhaust air into the case like mine does, use the fan on the side as an exhaust fan. I have mine set up like that and the card is idling at 47C... When the fan was an intake, it was idling at 52C

    Well crap. When I last checked at least one of those I mentioned had free shipping.

    Also, I do not need a case window. I would kind of prefer not to have one but it's not a deal breaker if it does.
