Default NZXT Tempest Steel Mid-Tower

Finding a quality mid-tower for under $100 doesn't happen to often, but NZXT looks to hit the mark with their Tempest. It offers plenty of space (and even support for eATX), four large pre-mounted fans, an intuitive internal design and sharp looks, making it a wise choice for any new build.

You can read the full review here and discuss it here.

BTX was a bad idea that was doomed for failure.

While this does remind of hte 900, it is a dramatic improvement OVER the 900.

E-ATX is the next generation larger size motherboard that will allow dual CPU's for the masses.
