Well, at least you have learned from this problem and will not get a small case again. Big is good for upgrading, small is for taking up less of your desk. I like monster cases, but have no desk space as a result.

Dude, just put your case on the floor. I've got five cases under my desk, which lets me fit four monitors on top.

thing is, when its on the floor, 1) altough it has a base to keep it steady, it is light so it is easily tipped over, 2) the CD drive is sideways which makes it awkward to put in a CD because i am always afraid the little tabs there will screw up the CD, 3) its easier to reach the floppy/CD, 4) there is a space under the monitor in which it'll fit (it is not directly under the monitor)

but having it on the floor does have its benefits: where it is now I have to disconnect all the connections before i can pull it out and put it on the table/floor to open it up.

this Dell case is not bad in another way, too: you push in 2 buttons on the side, and open it. no tools, no twisting screws or knobs or keys, etc.
