Default Could somone help me choose a case for my first build.

Im trying to decide on what case I want for my first build. Im trying not to be picky but I have to get one with at least 2 front usb ports and a headphone jack. But I dont want any fancy lights or windows.

Here are the cases im currently looking at. Anyone can make suggestions on other cases as well.

Antec Performance I P180 Silver Computer Case

COOLER MASTER Centurion 5 CAC-T05-UW Black Computer Case
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811119068

COOLER MASTER Praetorian PAC-T01-EK Black All Aluminium Alloy ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811119035

Any advice is always helpful.

Whats your hardware and regardless of the hardware you probably want a Coller Master case of some sort.

the antec is not one for a first time build and out of the coolermasters i have only seen the Centurion in the flesh and it looked (and felt) very high quality. out of the three you suggested there i would have to say that the Centurion would be the one that i would go for.

Check out the Antec PERFORMANCE TX TX1050B Black Steel Server Computer Case 500W ATX12V v2.0 Power Supply
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811129158

It's big, black, and beefy. Plus it has a great PSU.

the second one, I saw the first case in real life, the front panel looks and feels like cardboard.
