Silverstone LC17 -- Is it Good? And what about the remote?

Hello Everyone,

So as I slowly form my list of items for my HTPC, I am stuck on the case.  I have already put a good chunk of money into this, having purchased a Q6600, and a Blu-Ray & HD-DVD optical drive, so I don't need to get the best case out there.  But I would like to get a good case that makes the build easy.

I am planning on two hard drives, and a big honking 9600 nVidia card.  Beyond that, just an X-FI sound card.

So how would the Silverstone LC17 work?  It is $120 at Newegg (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811163055).

Also, I would like to incorporate my HTPC with my MX-850 Aeros remote (http://www.amazon.com/Universal-Remote-Control-MX-850-Aeros/dp/B0007N5XPW).  How can I do this?  At a much lower priority, I would like to have a wireless keyboard and mouse for my HTPC as wll in the event I need to do certain actions like modifying the BIOS etc.  Is there a good package that will provide all of this for me?  If not, then all I really care about is integrating my HTPC actions with my MX-850 remote?  In other words, I wantto be able to watch recorded HDTV, Blu-Ray & HD-DVD movies, play music etc by pointing my MX-850 remote at my HTPC.

Thanks in advance...

I just go the LC17 about a month ago.  I love it.  Lots of room and it looks great.  Matches perfectly with my A/V equip.

Cool.  I am still going through the long thread that LowTech provided, so it is good to hear that you like this case.  What video card did you put in your build?  I'm concerned about the length of the video card butting up to the back of the harddrive(Drunk.
