Default Find Me A Case!


I just ordered all my CPU gear.... except for a case.

Can anyone pick me out a good case under $60... My mobo is:

Asus AN8-E ATX and I bought a power supply.

I'm just confused b/c alot of these cases have front audio / USB ports...... how do I know if my mobo has front audio / USB ports to coorespond w/ it?

You don't need to connect it up. I didn't. I have one USB connected up, as I needed to use it, and my case being big, it is difficult to get behind. Anyway, if you don't need it, don't connect it up.

Any ATX case that you like will be fine. Remember to be careful if you go for a cheap case, as you can cut-yourself very easily.

(Antec, Thermaltake and coolermaster are great cases.)

My case costed me 16 bucks from newegg. It does the job, looks decent, but hey it's a 16 dollar case... The front USB ports on the case are obviously cheaply made, because unless the USB plug is in there perfectly, it tends to lose connection. I just said f*ck it and I'm gonna run a hub from the rear USB ports so I don't have to be pestered with digging the tower out each time I need to hook up a digi cam of mp3 player.

Just thought I'd share.
There's no place like /home.
