The NSK2400 case has an aluminum front plate, room for two optical drives, two hard drives and a micro-ATX motherboard. The unit is cooled with two 120mm fans, which might be overkill. I would be tempted to lower their speed or disconnect one to reduce the noise level. With Today's technology, all of this could translate into a 1.5TB media center equipped with a dual-core CPU and 1 GB of RAM. Not bad to record TV shows and play MP3 files... Most media center case designs are either ugly or too expensive.
