I wanted a power-core that would last me some upgrades. I figure, highend case, powercore, liquid cooler, and motherboard I'm good to go upgrade-wise. I chose a SSD for my OS (I already owned it). I think the only thing holding me back is my video card. Next upgrade I'm looking to drop a better processor, videocard, and another set of RAM. I like it quite a bit as is, but I figure in the years to come I'll have to keep up.
As long as you don't mind it taking up some room, this case is great and chances are you won't be needed to upgrade it... ever.
