Default Help me choose my case!!

I've gotten my case choices down the following:

http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...nufacture=ASUS

http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...oxconn%20Group

http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...p&promoid=1021

I'm most interested in that Asus one, however I have no idea how its built or anything, I can't find any inside pictures. I also have all beige cd-roms and floppies, so it might look a bit funny lol.

case 2 looks like a gateway

these are just my opinion is there a reason your not going with one with a window?

Actually a case CAN impact the performance, mainly on overclocking though. If the case doesnt have very good airflow, then you will not be able to reach as high clock speeds because the temperature will be pretty high already.

Just wondering, why those cases? IMO they all look kinda dull, but thats me. Of the three the last one looks the best, but again thats my opinion. Really what you like best, if they have about the same space, slots, bays etc.

edit:
Lol same time post. :amazed:
Yeah the TT cases are pretty nice.

I don't like this one because you have to open up the door to access the drives, although the smooth look is clean, I just don't want to exert myself by having to do that everytime



I don't like this one because it doesn't flow well. It does have a contemporary look to it, which is attractive, but it just doesn't appeal to me.



If I had to choose out of those three, this would be the one. It's contemporary looking, has a futuristic kind of look to it, it does it for me. The thing that would make it even better is a UV reactive side panel with some cold cathode lights and stuff in the case.
