No, it's in the right place.

Tbh I don't think anyones posted down to the fact you've picked out a fine rig!

If it were me I'd go for a classier case, but that's a personal thing.

Thanks Ham,

My problem with the case is that, although I want enough space inside for components and also good airflow. I can't really fit a big case due to not having loads of room at home.

Are there any other cases that you can recommend?

yeah im with lynx, if your thinking about adding another grfx card later on your system will be ready for it with a 850w psu, if the 600w psu is down to not having enough funds you could always go for a non modular because the case you have chosen has plenty of room for cable management

Great, I shall take a look at some beefier PSU's, having the headroom for the extra graphics card will certainly be useful.
