    Mid-tower case that's good for traveling?

    I have a system that's going to serve either as a server and secondary system - or come with me across country if I move into a dorm and have to bounce back and forth a few times a year.

    I've been all over Newegg and Amazon and Xoxide. I don't want to spend a mint because this case is going to suffer some abuse, but all of the cheap cases are made up of aluminum foil and cardboard, it seems. I need to spend under $70. I have a hard limit of $100.

    My requisites: 1x120MM intake, 1x120MM exhaust (at least), side mounted hard drives that don't point back at the motherboard (I.E. Antec 300 2 instead of Antec 300), and durability. Ideally the hard drives would be easy to slide in and out of the system.

    Full build:
    Core i7 920 @ 3.2 GHZ from 2.66 with a Thermalright Ultra-120
    Asus Rampage III Formula
    24 gigs RAM
    Radeon 6870
    1x256 gig SSD + 2x1TB RAID-1 WD caviar blacks + 1x3TB something-or-other to use as a backup drive.
    (old) Seasonic 550W PSU


    Thanks!

    I'm liking the looks of this! I'll likely order it tomorrow if no one else has other suggestions!
