Default Choice of cases

I have been looking at some of the TT cases which i think I will be using when i build my new system. The 3 I like the most are the Tsunami, Kandarf and the Eclipse.

The tsunami is probably the most popular and is the one which you get the most for your money. I haven't heard much about the Kandarf but from what I've heard it is a very good case and has a lot of features, it also is a full tower which is good for upgrading in the future. The final one, the Eclipse which i like the best but is also the most expensive but i have heard absolutely nothing about. I love the DVD drive on the front which also means I don't have to buy one seperately

Which one?

From just looking at those...

Kandalf > Tsunami > Eclipse.

My quick observations.

Edit: I didn't look at prices because I didn't see them on their page.

Both are correct spellings of the word. But, the case is named Armor. No reason to feel like an idiot, it's a legitimate mistake.

lol, armour is british english, armor is american.

I'd DEFINITELY! go with the Kandalf, if u are going with the kandalf get the Silver kandalf. its like half the weight of the black, but then again its made of aluminum so its ezly scratched. i think imgoing to consider the black myself, it still looks great, if not better. but then hm.........yeah i think i will probably get the black kandalf, it would cut about $50 from my expenses.
