    You and many others here say that every new gen... then end up with one

    I might try the RTX 2070 or 2080
    I'm actually serious if i do get one it has to be one hell of a deal no way im paying $2000 for something that is going to be outclassed in a few now AMD might be interesting but as of now games don't need no more than a 1080 if you're at 1080p 1080ti is for 1440/2160

    2080/2080ti is for bragging

    Tommy, the 2080 TI XC is $2500 in NZ Dollars, and it's not $2000 as you quoted. It's $1150 here and may be a little cheaper once they are in stock in the stores.

    Now I'm confused
    I need to call Caseking monday.

    The case I have on my "Wishlist": PHANTEKS Enthoo Pro Midi-Tower, Tempered… | CASEKING.de (MPN: PH-ES614PTG_SWT)

    It's called Enthoo Pro Midi-Tower, Tempered Glass SE (PRODUCT CODE : PH-ES515PTG) which is this: Phanteks Innovative Computer Hardware Design

    But specs and pics are Enthoo Pro Tempered Glass also a "special edition" (PRODUCT CODE : PH-ES614PTG): Phanteks Innovative Computer Hardware Design

    And it is a Full Tower!

    The difference being, it is not the Enthoo Pro M which has better airflow and being slightly smaller and doesn't lose air pressure over distance, and because useless ODD(3x) and unneeded(for me) extra HDD cage in the way .

    I just found and read that review I posted just above.
    It's nice to know I can remove the drive cages at least.

    I say I don't need them, but maybe in the future I might wish to use them?

    Nice case, looks smaller than what it is, like a piece of furniture. Pity they don't have back-plane for disk drive trays. I'm still working on customizing my Raidmax case, it has nine 3.5" trays in the bottom part and four 5.25" bays in top front. Bottom ones could use a back-plane to be entirely useful although disks can be accessed from both sides by means of hinged covers. Pictures soon.

    I know I Love my Phanteks Enthoo Primo Special Edition case, and it was Steve that told me about Phantek cases. Its a Full tower and exactly what I wanted.

    I was actually hoping for the midi version, as I don't need all the other stuff, and as stated above, better air flow/strength.
    But I'll probably get this one.
    On the plus side the full case version at least has a reset button(important for benchmarking crash lockup's), and I won't need to open the door to access the one on my mainboard.
