Default Case brands

Hey all, this place was a great help last time I had a problem. This time around I am wondering 1. Good brand for a case (no ps) 2. A good website for cases (I've been searching price watch, but I can't seem to find what I want)

Thanks again,
Patrick

Thermaltake, Chieftec. Both are really good.

Well, this one caught my eye right when the page loaded. Is Antec a good brand?

Antec is a great brand for cases, as well as PSU. The Sonata and Sonata II are both awesome.

If you want a custom case, check out http://voyeurmods.com/

Also, I was wondering what I would need to do if I wanted that case with a 500 watt PS?
