Default Case

Hello,

Just wondering what suggestions you can make about a good case.

By good, I mean !good! looking, stable, etc.

Max Limit - 100$

I am a fan of good looking pc cases.

Oh, and preferably full tower.

Spend more than 100, It makes the whole experience so much more rewarding. However if your total is only 100 go for the thermaltake armor jr.

Of course, 'When In Doubt, Antec ™', but they don't have much, if any, full tower cases. If you're not looking for case with a quality power supply, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811144136 would do nicely. (However, I would switch out the power supply, Aspire power supplies aren't very good, but of course, it's up to you.)

That looks like a total pos

My first case was an aspire x-infinity. Cool, but it was a real plastic piece of sh1t

Im now using the Gigabyte 3d Aurora
paid 155 for it, and its an amazing case

Here's a list of links. Starts with midtowers, adn goes up. All under $100.

Main thing is to get what you want, be it $200 or $30. Otherwise you won't be happy with it.

Bought a server case myself, X-Alien, steel, with 2 LED lights came stock with expansion slots in the back and front for more fans, I find that the circulation with all the extra room is awesome and I can let my computer run constantly 24/7 with no heating issues, even keeps my feet cool while im playing =)
