"Sony set to drop the PS3 to $299, Microsoft to respond with a cheap Pro Version @ $249"

The Fud have got some inside sources telling them that the console wars are set to continue at lower prices.

Apparently, Microsoft are due to drop the Pro version of the Xbox 360 to $249 and Sony are set to drop down their PS3 to $299. Whether this will mean that we'll be seeing the PS3 @ £200ish straight away is another question, but I have no doubt that retailers will eventually have to pass on these savings to the consumers.

This could cause a lot of people to jump onto the PS3 platform as I know quite a few people who want one but don't want to spend nigh on £300.

On the other hand, the 360 is so cheap that it's almost a no-brainer...if you like that sort of red ring thing.

Going to pick this up in the spring? Or don't care a hoot? Let us know in the forums.

Yup, but some people can't afford or do not want the more gimmiky features in a case. However I do feel that the Three Hundred looks very posh.

Thanks Youngie, a lot of effort went into it to make sure it came out to be what it is.

I just bought this case. I think it's a brilliant design. My biggest issue is definetly the 8pin ATX situated at the top of the Rampage II Extreme. As the PSU is at the bottom of the case and 2xEVGA GTX280 in SLI is blocking the way, I have been thinking about an extender to get it out of the way. It goes straight over the cards and fits into the MB just barely. A Tri-SLI build would not work for me. I have the Toughpower850 modular PSU. But then again, this is the ONLY issue I have, and it can easily be fixed by extending the ATX cable. For the dust issue, the solution of filters is an easy and affordable fix. I use bags from a vacumcleaner( New ones of course :) ). The filters in the bags are easy to get out with the use of scissors and you get bags in almost every size. The filters are very thin and does not stop the airflow noteworthy.

Wow thanks for the airfilter tip. Might be using that on my HAF932, pre made fanfilters do not fit on 230mm fans :P

Nice lil' idea there mate. Love it. However, I do like to see my fans in their glory and I will be keeping it without them. I don't mind having to do the odd dust out, it doesn't take that long and it takes me away from staring at this thing all day! :)

Yes, the looks of filters is an issue. On my old cabinet I had the Lian-Li ex250 HD rack which already has a built-in filter that doesn't show from the outside. I implemented the vacumcleaner filter in it to get even better protection against dust, but the Antec900 will of course get a degraded look if you put in the filters in the front bays. I'll research abit on how to keep the looks when I reassemble it and throw in some pics if I find any good solutions.
