Isn't the NZXT also a full-size? What is a decent mid-size tower with good cooling, good cable management, good space, and perhaps a side window?

What operating system are you currently running? We have about 30 or so PCs running AutoCAD here from versions 2005-2011 (mostly AutoCAD LT but a few Inventor and Mechanical in there) and we haven't managed to get any version older than 2008 to install/run properly on Windows 7. If you're currently using Windows XP or Vista, you may want to keep that in mind. If you are already running Windows 7, I'd love to hear how you managed to get it to work. Do you have SP1 installed?

Well to be honest, I don't even have a personal computer right now. My work computer is Windows XP with CAD 2008. There are 2 people within the office with newer computers running Windows 7 and can run CAD 2008 just fine. As far as what SP they have and whatnot, I am not sure.

Well like I said, AutoCAD 2008 works fine. It's versions OLDER than 2008 that don't work on Windows 7. If you're trying to use AutoCAD 2004, it probably won't work.

Ooooh, I misread your last post, lol.

How important would a case that offers great airflow be if I decide to get, say Corsair Hydro H100?

Hey guys, am hoping someone can list some cases, preferably full size, the offers top-notch cable management, can fit a Hydro H100, possibly has a side-window option, is sturdily built (no cheap pieces), and looks sleek. Thanks, all!
