Default Keepin Cool

Mostly im just curious to what you think about buying an expensive case that supposedly has good cooling, or buying a cheap case and modding it alot?

depends how much money you had, i'd probably get a case with good cooling, and then if i decided i needed it, mod it a bit to improve it, but if i was on a tight budget (and wasnt' so lazy) i'd get a cheaper case and mod it.
