they are both ok, silver is slightly better, as i like the conrast w/ the lights. but it might be too many colors? black/sliver/blue lights, kinda alot.

Both of them are a little flashy for my taste, but if I went with one of those, it would be the silver.

Aww, I want one of those silver cases, but they don't have them out here. I'd go for the silver. Easy to make match your monitor, mouse, etc.

Out of those two, I'd take the blue. The blue LEDs kind of clash with the sliver of the other case imo. I think you should consider getting the all black version of that case, that's what I'd get if I wanted that case.

Personally I'd never get one of those cases with the doors on the front. I think it would get annoying to have to open and close that door every time you want to change a CD. Especially if the case is sitting to your right because the door would open the wrong way.

The case I have is the Cooler Master Centurion 5. It's a great case for only $50 and it comes in einther black and silver(what I have) or black and blue. You might want to check out that case aswell.
