Default Cases.

What are some good cases that blend looks and cost and performance. I want an all around case, with a power supply bundled with it, 400wat atleast. Also brands and names will be GREATLY appreciated. Thx for all replies.

It depends what 'looks' you like, Thermaltake is my brand of choice when it comes to cases, but they are a little 'flashy' for some. Other very good cases are made by Lian Li and Cheiftec.

Lian Li makes great cases but they tend to be simple in appearance and expensive.

Chieftec makes some nice cases at an affordable price.

My choice right now is Koolance but that's for water cooling.

WITH a >400W PSU??? Pffft good luck. The best option would (ugh) be a Tt Xaser series. I hate them, but if you want a decent 400W PSU, thats your only choice.

The money of a Lian Li is very very very visible once you get one in front of you and tinker around a bit. Its not all invested in flashing lights and acrylic.
