Default Looking for a cheaper big box case...

I am looking for a case kinda like the UFO, but not as expensive. Are there replicas out their cheaper, that are large like that and alumminum or maybe a place I could buy used cases from, I tried ebay already. I could always resort to making my own but would rather buy. Anyone have any ideas?

Heh heh, I was afraid of that reply. Yea I know they are very sexy, but I dunno if I could fork over the 300+ for it. After I posted I looked into building my own and it wouldn't be that hard because you can buy the mobo tray and HD tray from their site, so you just need to cut and weld some alumminum.

They have some pretty cool stuff besides cases, but some of their modified cases are just as expensive, looks like I might opt to build my own.
