antec makes quality caseas and psu

Thermaltake has some nice cases

I just got a case today...

Antec Performance I180.

I had sometime to open it up and play around with it. I'll tell you it's pretty darn nice. I can't wait until the other components come so i can finish this build.

I've got a Thermaltake and i love it. I've seen that Antec Performance 180 and it looks pretty sharp too. Might want to check that out.

The NZXT trinity is pretty nice. Its simple, yet stylish. Has enough room for me.
And its affordable too. only $75 on newegg. I got mine for $45 after a mail in rebate which was pretty nice.

I like Thermaltake armour and Shark cases.

Nice, big, heavy, and sexy.

Couldn't have said it better myself. I would have gotten one of those, but they were a bit out of my price range. The Tsunami is still good too

Me? I like huge, spacious, and solid. No need for side windows and neon lights.

I like the look of the Antec PERFORMANCE TX TX1050B Black Steel Server Computer Case 500W ATX12V v2.0 Power Supply
