Looks like this is a "post your computer thread" now

But yeah, my tower has 2 fans alone, 5 fans in all and the tower is also ventilated front to back(very see-through). Its also blowing cool air, which my brother-in-law told me, I'm not working the PC hard enough

^ $1200-$1400 is a good budget especially if you build it yourself.

Totally turning to a computer thread

make sure you are blowing more air in than exhaust out (ie. 2 fans front, 1 fans back)

The higher pressure inside actually prevents dust build up by causing air to "leak out" of the spaces in your case (like drive bays and corners)

Antec 900, it's cheaper now that they have the 1200 out, but damn I love this thing.

I spent $1010-ish, tax in on my setup.I can easily game with mine. With a few hundred more, you can prob upgrade to a nicer video card than mine and more RAM. I don't think you can build a gaming one for less than what spent. But I could be wrong.

+2. It even has a built-in window, the computer equivalent of having tinted windows.
