I dont think newegg do international deliverys I`ll buy a case from www.overclockers.co.uk so if anyone sees something on there that looks decent let me know. Buying a case is alot harder than I had planned so hard to tell whats good unless I see it up close and touch it and see how the screws are and the metal along with how much space it has.

I'm probably wrong in saying this, but if it were me, I would just get whatever looks good, as long as it's mid-tower or bigger, then it should get pretty good airflow...

na, I've seen cases like that before, they are designed to keep the pc cool (gameing an overclocking)

I don't know about this one specifically though..., but one I saw like it took in air through the two holes on the front/sides, and put it out of the back

I've just never seen one so cheap!?!

well after browsing around Iv decided on a case the ThermalTake Shark.

http://www.microdirect.co.uk/Product...10&GroupID=139

Iv looked around it has good reviews and everything im looking for, great air flow, lots of space and able to upgrade in future.

I did find reviews with some problems with it but nothing too serious that put me off the case and for £80ish should do just fine
