    i have a proprietary case from gateway. i believe its a midtower. my son has been playing alot of warcraft with the pc. have an antec 480watt psu, geforce 6600gt graphics card, plenty of memory, pent 4 2.6ghz, good mobo and all that. problem is everything is really crammed into the case and sometimes he plays for hours on the weekends and i believe its overheating and after awhile freezes up. i have a couple of extra fans , one is a slot fan but the case isn't really designed for adequate ventilation for longterm gaming. are there midtower cases designed with more space or are all of them tight? should i go to a full size case? i just don't know that much about cases but i know i need more room for better air ventilation. any case suggestions would be appreciated. lioke to stay under 75.00

    Just be carefull, like you said a proprietary case, I am not sure that the MB from the Gateway will fit into a standard case without some problems (everything lines up with the new case).....there are others here that will know. I would wait and see what they have to say on the subject.
