I have told someone this before, it might have even been you idk.
Buying a case is NOT PERSONAL PREFERENCE!!!!
When buying a case:
~Look for the case material. different materials disipate heat different than others.
~look for form factor (ATX, mATX ext.)
~Look for size. some people want full towers. Full towers are pretty big but have overall good airflow and room inside the comp where as mid towers have good enough size but a little decreased airflow.
~Make sure the case has enough fans and room for all your optical drives and hdd's.
~PSU's also have to fit in these so make so you have the right size psu as well
cases are not personal preference.
They are personal preference and you also want to keep a eye out for that other stuff. Most of them are ATX cases unless you need a BTX for some unknown reasons. Pick the tower you like and read reviews about the airflow and stuff. The differnt kinds of metal doesn't really matter all you ahve to mostly worry about is the airflow. If it has enought fans in it that makes you happy then go with it. Picking a case isn't hard as all unless your super picky :-P
Its not like your going to jsut get a big hugh pink case with purple and red hearts all over it cause it is a full tower with good airflow. You going to pick the case that you like and that you won't mind looking at.
