Question New case...

I have a Compaq SR1750NX and I don't like the case it's in... There are little "doors" infront of the DVD drive expansion bays. This means to close the drive, I must push on it (I HATE DOING THIS).

Anyway, I was thinking of transferring all of the parts into a new (good) case. Any suggestions? Please try to keep it under $150 Candian.

Thanks!

You probably have an mATX mobo so you would need an mATX compatible case.

Do you want a large case that's sleek and sexy
Large case that's flashy
Mid size case thats sleek
Mid size case thats flashy
etc etc etc etc etc etc.

Do you want a window, lights, room for expansion?
